Without 25% of my funds invested here I would probably be poorer

James - If you are unhappy with the recent performance of PNL then you don't really understand what it is designed to do. The FTSE is up 20+% over the last 6 months. So what! PNL isn't designed to track it - up or down - but to preserve and grow capital whatever the markets throw at it. So far it is absolutely bang on acheiving that. I get my excitement in other small cap stocks that fly or die........ but whatever happens PNL trundles onwards and slowly upwards. Just as I want it to.

This trust really needs to pull it's finger out. I have about 9% of my funds invested here and it's going nowhere. Losing patience.

On 31st March 2013, gold was listed at 12.4%. So what with the massive fall in the gold price in April, I would guess that they have added some more during this month.

Gold is listed as 12.2% on 30th April 2013.

Jimbo, thanks for that. Willgo back in now the ship has steadied, noting that PNLis reported to have reduced its gold holding a short while ago but % not indicated in the report I read.

Gold price fall may already have ended DavidBH. I'm reading of tightness in physical supply all over the place, not just on the Zerohedge websites of this World. Important to recognise the most significant fall in price was in the futures market rather than the physical market. Yes, the latter fell aswell which seems to have bought buyers of the metal out in force. Difference in price of a George V Sovereign was only in the order of GBP 20 between before and after the fall, which meant GBP 255 per coin became GBP 235. As somebody who bought a couple before the fall, I can live with that. Given how steady PNL has been, and how defensively it is run, I would not sell out on a drop in the price of Gold. The reasons for holding Gold as an insurance policy have not gone away. If anything, they are intensifying. Don't let the sky high Dow and FTSE trick you into thinking all is well with the World...

Norman Lamont: What's been your best investment? Putting money into an investment trust called Personal Assets Trust [up 57% over five years compared with a 9% fall for the FTSE 100]. Its objective is the preservation of capital. I prefer investment trusts. The fees are less than open-ended funds and the manager does not have the distraction of redemptions or new money coming in. Also, trust managers do not have to spend time marketing their products in the way open-ended fund managers have to. http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/business/money/fameandfortune/article1172493.ece

Jeff Their gold was taken out of GBS and put in an "allocated" account with JPM where it sits to this day. Why,if they had concerns about GBS actually having any gold and did not consider using a commercial vault like Viamat beats me. You would think Robin would pay attention to this especially after the trouble MF Global customers have had in trying to get their money back out of JPM. Nothing wrong with PNLs returns and the thinking behind their asset allocation, however it would not be the first time that a bunch of provincials in Edinburgh have had the rug pulled from under their feet by the big boys Have a read of this ... http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2012/7/20_London_Trader_-_The_LBMA_Gold_Price_Fixing_Scheme_Is_Over.html

Jeff I would not get too carried away with this one. You cannot criticise the asset allocation as the results speak for themselves. However what makes me worry is the company that they keep. It would not be the first time that canny investors such as Robin Angus in Old Reeky have been ripped off when they play with the big boys. Remember Edinburgh is very provincial is more Andy Stewart than Wall Street. My first worry is where is the gold at the minute? In times past the reports made mention of Seb Lyon using PHAU and the press reporting him taking physical delivery of his share. However the stuff that popped through the letter box the other day makes no mention of PHAU and just lists a "Gold" holding. Regardless as if PHAU actually has all the gold that it says it has, what really makes me worry is their relationship to JP Morgan as custodian. Have a read of the second last para on page 37 of the annual report. I wonder how confident Robin is of JPM with regard to their recent multi bullion losses and Blythe Master' s manipulation of the bullion market. If the gold is with JPM I would kiss your pension fund good bye or at least 12% of it. http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/gold-daily-and-silver-weekly-charts.html

The managers' statements, from today's final results, are a most depressing, yet very accurate read about investing at the moment.

I think the price jumped because someone, late in the day, bought 1.8 million pounds worth. Hopefully it will go back to around its NAV price on Monday.

40T. It isn't a unit trust but an investment trust; traded like an ordinary share in the market. Sorry I started this hare running; low profile is best.
