This report covers the period from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2019.
The financial year to September 2019 was a challenging period and our investments were buffeted by the effects of the US-China trade war, unrest in Hong Kong, slowing global economic growth and the fear of recession. Closer to home, the continuing uncertainty over Brexit has affected the economy and the stock market. The shares hit a low point on Christmas Eve before staging a substantial recovery in the first quarter of 2019. Overall, the recovery continued into the second half of our financial year, albeit again with some volatility, and we ended the financial year with the NAV total return showing a modest gain over 12 months.
