2014’s Winners and Losers

It is always interesting to look back at the winners and losers of the past year…and this year’s top performer may well surprise you!

With global stock market returns varying widely – while Israel rose by almost 40%, Greece fell by about 30% – our own FTSE 100 Index delivered a miserly return of 0.7%.

In contrast UK Government Index Linked Gilts delivered an astonishing return of +19%; this coupled with decent returns from Global Bonds (+7.7%) and the S & P 500 (+13.75) meant our 50/50 portfolio delivered a respectable return of 4% for the year!
