Commentary

Performance as at Q1 2024 - Another Bank of England (BoE) meeting saw the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) keep their bank rate on hold for the 5th consecutive time at 5.25%, as expected. Overall economic data for the UK was strong over the month; Purchasing Manager Index (PMI's) continued to show a recession is probably over (following back-to-back quarterly declines), while the fall in inflation also helped show signs of a recovery for the UK economy. PMI's continue to trend higher, showing strong signs of economic growth for the UK economy as the composite grew from 52.9 to 53. The first sign of inflation cooling for the month was through the continued decline in wage earnings, now at 6.1%, its lowest recording since December 2022. The unemployment rate remains below 4%, although just above expectations and last month’s rate of 3.8%, now at 3.9%. GDP was mixed, with month-on-month (MoM) growth at 0.2%, while year-on-year (YoY) showed a decline at -0.3%. Inflation reports continue to be the focus, as expectations fell from 3.3% to 3%. Headline inflation also slowed to 3.4% YoY, lower than forecasted and a drop from 4% last month, its lowest report since October 2021. Core inflation fell to 4.5%, its lowest number since early 2022, while headline services inflation remains at 6.1%, not far off the peak of 7.4% in July 2023. The end of the month saw the BoE keep their bank rate unchanged, with all but one member who voted for a cut in agreement with the hold. Given the positive economic data over the month for the UK, gilt yields drifted around 10 basis points lower across the curve as the market starts to rethink an environment of yields higher for longer.

Important Information

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

This factsheet is intended for the advisers of occupational pension schemes using Prudential group pension contracts and Prudential grouped personal pensions and Stakeholder pension contracts. its purpose is to provide an insight into how investment markets and funds have performed over the period and is provided for information only.

These risk ratings have been developed by Prudential to help provide an indication of a fund’s potential level of risk and reward based on the type of assets which may be held by the fund. Other companies may use different descriptions and as such these risk ratings should not be considered as generic across the fund management industry.

We regularly review our fund risk ratings, so they may change in the future. If, in our view, there is a material change in the fund's level of risk, for example due to a significant change to the assets held by the fund or in the way the fund is managed, we will provide information on the new risk rating. We recommend that you make sure you understand the risk rating of any fund before you invest.

Important Information

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.
