Investment Manager's report June's commentary

For the month of June, the Trust’s total shareholder return, NAV total return and equity portfolio return were 1.4%, 1.1% and 1.0% respectively, outperforming the MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) which returned 0.3% over the same period.

The Federal Reserve raised interest rates in June for the second time this year, reflecting strong US economic growth and a robust labour market. However, trade concerns continue to weigh heavily on equity markets, with emerging market equities being the most affected. Further US interest rate rises could put increasing pressure on vulnerable emerging market countries which have large current account deficits. In June, stock selection in Europe and the UK, and relative lack of exposure to poorly performing Asia and Emerging Markets, were contributors to the outperformance of the equity portfolio.

Over the quarter, tightening measures from central banks globally have reduced available liquidity, increasing volatility and dispersion in the market. We have not made any changes to our portfolio of managers or target allocations this month. The biggest addition to the portfolio over the month was Equinix, a technology company specializing in internet connection and related services.
