Manager's Monthly Report

June 2014

Performance

The capital NAV of the Trust fell by 1.5% in June which was in line with the capital return from the FTSE All-Share Index.

The UK equity market stalled in June, more than wiping out any gains from the prior couple of months. This was also reflected globally as disappointing US GDP data and ongoing issues in Iraq weighed heavily on market sentiment.

Mixed messages from the BoE and governor Mark Carney, in particular, have also confused the market. Carney’s Mansion House speech was more hawkish than anticipated, saying that rates could rise sooner than the market was expecting. This was toned down at his appearance before the Treasury Select Committee where he highlighted lacklustre wage inflation as evidence of slack in the labour market. This along with headline CPI falling to a below consensus 1.5% year on year has dampened down the rate rise rhetoric.

The FTSE 100 Index fell by 1.5%, with the FTSE 250 Index and the FTSE SmallCap Index falling by 1.8% and 0.9% respectively.

Activity

FTSE UK index series was rebalanced in June. This resulted in 29 new additions and 13 deletions from the FTSE All-Share Index. The 6 new additions to the FTSE 350 index were all new issues, namely Just Eat, AO World, Pets At Home, Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate, BRIT and Poundland Group. Heritage Oil (cash acquisition) was replaced in the FTSE 350 index by Exova at the month end.

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.
