  • Global equity markets finished higher in September, buoyed once more by synchronised central bank action in response to slowing economic data.
  • The Fund enjoyed its best monthly performance in over five years. 
  • The portfolio benefited from not owning bond proxy stocks and US dollar-earners such as Diageo, Unilever, Imperial Brands and Astrazeneca, as sterling and global bond yields rallied.
