Last year was a huge success for the portfolio and our investors. This January was fantastic too. By mid-way through January we were up 6% while general markets were down 10%. Things were looking very bright for the year ahead. What happened next has been difficult to swallow. We were, and still are, invested for what we see as a weak global economic environment on the horizon.

All resulting in losses that means we have given back our January gains and more.
