The capital NAV of the Trust fell by 0.9% in October which was in line with the capital return from the FTSE All-Share Index.
September declines continued into early October as lower global growth expectations, fears over the imminent end of the Federal Reserve’s QE program in the US and falling inflation resulted in lower equity prices and a spike in volatility across markets. The UK market was not immune from this trend and at one point the market reached a year-todate low. However, as global markets recovered, the UK market rose to finish the month marginally below where it started.
The BoE once again maintained the base rate at 0.5% and with inflation trending downwards to 1.2% yoy this stance is unlikely to change in the near future. The 3 month unemployment rate fell to 6.0% year-on-year although wage inflation is still anaemic at best. The UK’s relatively strong economic fundamentals were borne out in the yoy Q3 Gross domestic product figure of 3.0%.
Over the month the FTSE 100 Index fell by 1.2%, with the FTSE 250 Index rising 0.8% and the FTSE SmallCap Index falling 1.0%.
Hyder Consulting (FTSE SmallCap) was acquired for cash and deleted from the Index. The Trust topped up its holding in Hammerson following a shares in issue increase.
The Trust’s portfolio replicates in full the constituents and weightings of the FTSE 350 Index and also holds most of the constituents of the FTSE SmallCap Index.
