The objective of Murray International Trust PLC is to achieve a total return greater than its benchmark by investing predominantly in equities worldwide. Within this objective the Manager will seek to increase the Company’s revenues in order to maintain an above average dividend yield.
In this webcast Bruce gives an update on a wide range of subjects including performance, a sector breakdown, the twenty largest investments and an outlook for the Trust.
Deflationary concerns remained at the forefront of global economic policy as central banks reiterated their commitment to keep interest rates at historically low levels. With sluggish economic growth and intense competitive pressures constraining corporate profitability, financial markets remained hostage to mood swings in prevailing sentiment.
Confidence and optimism earlier in the period succumbed to widespread pessimism and escalating uncertainty by the month end as investors' expectations for earnings and dividend growth became increasingly vulnerable to disappointment. Consequently global equity markets generally declined over the month.
There were no significant trades over the period.
Financial returns from equity markets have proven tough to come by in 2014 year-todate. Multiple expansion, not earnings growth, has remained the primary driver of equity prices, whilst deflationary concerns, not fiscal prudence, has remained the fundamental influence on bond markets. Such behaviour “abnormalities” remain uncomfortable at best, or extremely concerning to those with rational expectations. Against such a backdrop, capital preservation remains the prime objective of current investment strategy.
