Manager's Monthly Report

July 2014

Performance

The capital NAV of the Trust fell by 0.4% in July which was in line with the capital return from the FTSE All-Share Index.

Though the UK equity market was fairly flat in July the tone in markets was risk off. The shooting down of a passenger jet on the Russian-Ukraine border, and subsequent US and EU sanctions on Russia, and the escalating situation in Gaza both weighed on sentiment.

UK data over the month was mixed. The CPI reading was much stronger than expected at 1.9% y/y against a consensus of 1.6% y/y, driven by the price of food and airfares. Sanguine wage inflation then diminished expectations of a November rate hike. The MPC voted unanimously to keep rates on hold, though some members felt the decision had become much more balanced since the start of the year. UK Q2 GDP data was in line with consensus, finally bringing it above pre-crisis peaks.

Over the month the FTSE 100 Index fell by 0.2%, with the FTSE 250 Index and the FTSE SmallCap Index falling by 1.5% and 0.7% respectively.

Activity

During the month the trust topped up its holding of Merlin Entertainments. Merlin’s investability weighting was increased following the completion of a secondary placing.

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.
