May 2016:

Highlights

  • Rising oil prices and USD strength seemed to support markets
  • The portfolio showed a gain of 1.02% for the month, moderately outperforming benchmarks.*

Lowlights

  • Weakness from China markets partly countered other positive gains

What this means

May ended with moderate gains in equity markets after a selloff through the first half of the month. The FOMC rate decision in mid June is keenly awaited and the markets are increasingly becoming dominated by the UK referendum on membership of the EU, which has the potential to cause some major disruption and market volatility.
