http://www.investegate.co.uk/stand--life-uk-small/sls/interim-management-statement/201311141120540357T/?fe=1&utm_source=FE%20Investegate%20Alerts&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=Announcement%20Alert%20Mail&utm_campaign=Stand.%20Life%20UK%20Small%20Alert With much the same commentary as the recent September newsletter... Activity The Company bought shares in Ocado, the on-line food retailer and distributor, during the quarter. The announcement of its joint venture with Wm. Morrison's puts the business on a sound financial footing, giving it a platform for strong growth. The Company also acquired a new holding in Delcam, the provider of computer-aided design software products to various industries. The business is well managed, enjoying earnings upgrades and fits the Company's investment process well. The Company also purchased shares in 4imprint, the manufacturer of branded corporate marketing and promotional products. The industry is highly fragmented and it is expected that the company will use its scale and operating leverage to acquire competitors and grow market share. Notable sales included the disposal of Domino's Pizza, which is suffering delays to its German expansion, and scientific equipment manufacturer Oxford Instruments which is experiencing a concerning deterioration in demand. Telecity was also reduced significantly as the company reported waning pricing trends.

I hold and question whether I need to hold anything else - I do of course but after reading Harry's report in the annual accounts I think a novice investor could learn so much from investing here and researching each company individually. One question; why does Harry weight the UK consumer sector so heavily? I would have thought that with salaries tight against inflation & personal credit already so high consumers have limited growth in disposable cash.

With thanks to Roger Lawson of ShareSoc who alerted me to this trust through his excellent AGM write-up on the ShareSoc Members Network: hxxp://sharesoc.ning.com/forum/topics/the-agm-forum?commentId=6389471%3AComment%3A23737 I have some common holdings and the performance looks terrific here, hence I decided to create the thread and watch how the trust develops and the themes and stocks Harry Nimmo introduces in future. Any holders here? SM
