Investment Manager's Review

Market Background

So far this year attention has remained focussed on generally favourable factors
for equity markets and merger and acquisition activity in particular has buoyed
sentiment.  Whilst this activity has highlighted the underlying value in a
number of businesses, the attention paid to it has meant that other potential
concerns have been overlooked such as the potential for rising interest rates or
high oil prices.

Investment Approach

As investors will be aware the Company seeks to look for opportunities in
companies that suffer from negative sentiment and where the valuation is
relatively low.  This will inevitably lead to a higher degree of volatility in
the Company's return when compared with the FTSE All-Share Index over short time
periods.  However, we believe this approach will reward the investor over the
longer term.


The range of individual company valuations across the market is unusually
compressed, a sign that investors are not differentiating significantly between
the future growth prospects of companies and the risks associated with these.
As a consequence attractive future growth has sometimes not commanded the
premium it should given investors' recent emphasis on short term earnings
visibility and high current yields.  In general, we have continued to find more
interesting opportunities in larger companies than for some time as they no
longer sell at a valuation premium to smaller ones.
