  • For much of the month, the UK equity market was driven by negative sentiment surrounding the coronavirus outbreak and the downbeat commentary on the UK economy by Bank of England officials.

  • We have made a number of new additions in recent months: SSE, WPP, Legal & General and Page Group and we continued to add to all four during January.
