London, NewRiver Retail, Nimrod Sea Assets, Macau Property, G4S and Shaftesbury. The holding in Carnival was disposed of. Outlook 2014 to date has seen the UK equity market struggle to find a convincing direction. Despite the well publicised improvements in economic growth in the UK and US economies, the current valuation of the market represents a level that reflects this optimism, but which may struggle to be maintained if the pace of earnings growth does not accelerate.

The other significant reasons for caution over the near term are the impact of a reduction in the scale of asset purchases under the policy of quantitative easing in the US, uncertainty about the strength of economic growth in the developing world, especially China, and a heightened level of political risk both in a domestic context ahead of the UK General Election and internationally due to the Ukrainian/Russian situation and Iraq. It is unlikely that the last two years' market performance will be repeated in the coming year.
