The capital NAV of the Trust fell by 2.9% in September which was in line with the capital return from the FTSE All-Share Index.
The Scottish Referendum dominated much of the headlines in the build-up to the event and the result provided a brief positive bounce in the UK equity market before the descent into the month end. After the referendum geopolitical tensions came back into investors’ focus, with the UK parliament being recalled and subsequently authorising airstrikes in Iraq, as well as continuing tension in the Ukraine. Stock specific concerns, notably Tesco, and a lack of firm commitment by the ECB to support the struggling eurozone economy, added to the downward pressure.
Once again the BoE maintained base rates at 0.5% with an unchanged 7-2 vote in favour. The MPC minutes showed the majority of the MPC see insufficient evidence of future inflationary pressure to raise rates with concerns about weakness in the eurozone economy. Other UK economic data was generally positive, with the drop in the 3 month unemployment rate to 6.2% year on year and August CPI up to 1.9% year on year.
Over the month the FTSE 100 Index fell by 2.9%, with the FTSE 250 Index falling 3.2% and the FTSE SmallCap Index falling 2.0%.
FTSE UK index series quarterly review occurred in September. This resulted in 16 new additions to and 1 deletion from the FTSE All-Share Index. The 6 new additions to the FTSE 350 index were all new issues, namely Saga, Nostrom Oil & Gas, TSB Banking, SSP, Zoopla Property, Spire Healthcare and Card Factory. The Trust purchased all the new FTSE 350 Index entrants and sold New World Resources, the company deleted from the FTSE All-Share Index at the rebalancing.
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.
