  • Fund manager commentary

    The UK equity market continued its strong progress from December into the first two weeks of January but then fell, ending the month with a negative return of 1.9%. Although this seems quite a large move, it is less than half of the gain the market made in December, so taking the two together, equities are still well ahead.

    The reason for the set-back in markets can largely be explained by the rise in bond yields, both in the UK and in many other international markets. Bond yields have been at exceptionally low levels for so many years that an increase, although widely expected, caused some upset in other markets. Bond yields, of course, were low for fundamental reasons – expectations of low economic growth rates and low inflation after the 2008 financial crisis – and because of deliberate policy – quantitative easing. The increase in economic growth and possibility of inflation really should be positive for equities in the long term but, at least in the short-term, the disruption in the bond market is outweighing this.

    Further support for the equity market has been coming from corporate activity, and two companies within the portfolio announced major proposed deals. Melrose Industries has made a hostile bid for GKN. We are long-standing investors in Melrose, seeing its management team as among the very best, and believe it would be able to revitalise the perennially disappointing GKN. Informa also announced a merger with UBM, a deal that has been proposed in the past, and one that should drive attractive synergies.
