*The increase in the interim dividend of 5.7p (2013 - 2.75p) declared in July 2014, which reflects the greater part of the total net income being received in the first half of the Company’s current financial year, means that the final dividend for 2014, to be declared in March 2015, may be lower than the interim dividend. Accordingly, the Net Dividend Yield, in due course, may be lower than this published Net Dividend Yield which reflects the recent rebalancing between interim and final dividends.

Manager's Monthly Report

December 2014

Performance

The capital NAV of the Trust fell by 1.7% in December which was in line with the capital return from the FTSE All-Share Index. The first half of December saw a sustained sell-off in risks assets on global growth concerns, with the UK equity market falling in excess of 7% by mid-December. The price of oil fell sharply along with the correlated decline in other commodity prices. Oil Producers, Oil Equipment & Distribution and Mining sectors were all hit hard. The weakness in these sectors dragged the FTSE All-Share Index to its lowest level of the year but the market rebounded from mid-December to the month end, recovering the majority of the losses suffered, despite the continued weakness in the oil price. Unsurprisingly, the BoE maintained the base rate at 0.5% and with CPI year on year falling to a 12 year low of 1.0%, there is little prospect of tightening in the near future. Elsewhere, there were some encouraging PMI numbers with both manufacturing and services beating expectations while retail sales numbers also surprised to the upside. Over the month the FTSE 100 Index fell by 2.3%, with the FTSE 250 Index rising by 1.5% and the FTSE SmallCap Index falling by 0.1%.

Activity

A second line of TUI AG (renamed from TUI Travel) joined the FTSE 100 index following the merger between TUI Travel (UK) and TUI AG (Germany). The FTSE UK index series quarterly review occurred in December with six companies joining the FTSE350 index. The Trust already held 4 of these companies and so purchased the remaining two, Jimmy Choo (an IPO) and Game Digital. Four companies were deleted from the FTSE All-Share index, of which the Trust held Asia Resource Minerals, Petropavlovsk and JKX Oil & Gas which were duly sold. Indivior was spun out of Reckitt Benckiser (FTSE 100 constituent) and joined the FTSE 250 index.

Strategy

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.
