Commenting on the markets, Tom Holl and Mark Hume, representing the Investment 
Manager noted: 
The Company's Net Asset Value (NAV) per share increased by 1.7% during the 
month of June (in Sterling terms with dividends reinvested). 
The mining sector saw a pullback in June, underperforming broader equity 
markets, with the MSCI ACWI TR Index returning a modest +1.2%. Mined commodity 
performance was varied, with copper falling 8.8% and iron ore (62% fe) rising 
7.5% and reaching an all-time high during the month.  However, economic data 
from China remained resilient, with its manufacturing Purchase Manager Index 
(PMI) at 51.3, and robust demand in the US and Europe helped support prices. 
The period also saw a sell-off across precious metals, with gold falling 7.4%. 
Turning to the companies, following its share buyback program Brazilian miner 
Vale announced a special dividend in June, based on expected profits for the 
current year. 
Traditional energy stocks continued to rise modestly over the month, whilst oil 
prices increased as economic data continued to suggest global economic recovery 
and stronger activity levels. Despite concerns over the spread of the delta 
variant of COVID-19, vaccinations continued and allowed movement restrictions 
to be eased. Within the energy sector, underlying oil demand appeared robust 
with a further drawdown in barrels held in storage. Negotiations for an Iranian 
nuclear deal continued without breakthrough, whilst market expectations are for 
an agreed additional production increase from OPEC given the continuing 
strength in oil demand. Against this backdrop, Brent and WTI (West Texas 
Intermediate) increased by 10.9% and 11.1%, ending the month at $77/bbl and $75 
/bbl respectively, whilst natural gas prices increased 25%. 
Within the energy transition sector, the G7 countries committed to support 
development and deployment of renewable energy and to promote sustainable 
mobility and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector. At a 
national level, the German government proposed an increase in renewables 
targets. Spain proposed a windfall tax on profits linked to higher carbon 
prices impacting nuclear and hydroelectric plants, whilst France increased 
taxation on solar power.
