Fund Summary
The Consensus Fund is a passively managed multi-asset fund seeking to generate capital growth over the long term. The fund has a target allocation of 70% equities, 15% bonds, 10% alternatives (including property) and 5% cash.

Market Commentary
The second quarter proved a positive one for equities, helped by clear signs from central bankers that they are prepared to ease monetary policy to support economic growth. Bolstered by this prospect, equities rallied through June to push the MSCI World Index to a total return of 3.6% (+2.5% in euro terms) for the three months. However, the period was not stress-free amid a fracture in US-China trade talks, mixed economic data, and heightened geopolitical fears.

Fixed income markets also enjoyed a strong quarter against the backdrop of shifting interest rate expectations amid global economy concerns. Global bond yields declined across all maturities, particularly among longer-dated debt. In June, it emerged that $12trn worth of global bonds were negative-yielding. In Europe, German 10-year bund yields fell to a record low of -0.33%, while US Treasury yield curve inversion remained a feature as the 10-year yield briefly dipped below 2%.
