In their words (as of 31 Jul 2017)

The trust outperformed the benchmark in July. Our holding in Bodycote, the international industrial engineering group, was the most significant contributor to relative performance following strong interim results. Other strong performers included Fever-Tree and KAZ Minerals, while not owning Carillion also contributed. There were no significant detractors.

At a sector level, industrial engineering was the leading contributor to performance, primarily driven by our holding in Bodycote. The media sector was the most significant detractor. We continue to believe that UK mid and small cap companies offer good prospects for long-term capital growth and income.
