In this webcast Bruce Stout gives an update on a wide range of subjects including the Trust’s performance, a sector breakdown, the twenty largest investments and an outlook for the Trust.
Weaker economic growth and lower inflation greeted the new year in similar style to what prevailed in 2014. Sovereign bond markets positively enthused about the diminishing prospects of higher interest rates, but such optimism was noticeably absent from equity markets. Downward deflationary pressure on product selling prices combined with anaemic consumer demand maintained a hostile environment for overall corporate profits.
Cautious trading statements regarding future earnings growth from numerous large multinational companies significantly dampened investor sentiment. In local currency terms, numerous global equity markets declined over the month, but sterling weakness against several key portfolio exposure currencies enabled positive absolute and relative performance to be secured.
Increased market volatility presented the opportunities to add to existing holdings in Chilean potash producer Soquimich and leading Swedish banking group, Nordea.
Having orchestrated a global collapse in sovereign bond yields through aggressive pursuit of reckless monetary policies, central banks continue to punish prudent savers to protect delinquent debtors. Negative nominal interest rates is tantamount to theft as savers' capital is “confiscated” by banks charging depositors to deposit funds. Against such a hideously disfigured economic and financial backdrop the priority for the Trust remains capital preservation and dividend growth.
