Fund Commentary
The UK Income Fund recorded a total return of -3.8% in September, underperforming the UK traditional, fundamental principles of investment.
Equity Income sector total return by -1.9%.
Marshalls (+6.5%) made the largest positive contribution to performance during the month
as its share price benefitted from continued momentum following the release of a positive
trading update at the end of August. There were also notable positive contributions from the
stock broking firms; Cenkos Securities (+9.2%) and Numis Corporation (+4.4%).
In contrast, UK Mail Group's shares fell by over 20% after the company reported that it had
experienced softer than expected trading conditions during the summer months. Despite
this setback, we remain confident that prospects for UK Mail remain strong, given the
company's opportunity to grow market share in a fast evolving sector. The share price of
Low & Bonar (-24.7%) also fell sharply after the company announced a drop in demand from
its European civil engineering customers.
The Fund's holding in Brammer was sold during the month and a partial disposal was made
in Electrocomponents. A number of positions were added to, including Telecom Plus, GLI
Finance, Macfarlane Group and Conviviality Retail.

You should not invest unless you are prepared to accept a high degree of risk. Taxation levels, benefits and

companies, including AIM companies, can carry greater risks than those usually associated with large
capitalisation companies. Smaller companies are likely to be less established and may not have access to the
financial resources available to their larger counterparts. The shares of smaller companies are relatively illiquid
and under-researched.
