“On Friday June 24 you did not feel like there were blue skies ahead,” says Indriatti van Hien, deputy manager of the Henderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust (HSL).

“The Government looked in disarray, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney remained bearish and markets had fallen dramatically.”

As a result, van Hien and the trust’s lead manager Neil Hermon took the decision to sell out of a number of economically sensitive stocks, a reaction that with hindsight has proved to be of mixed success. One of the less successful trades was SSP Group (SSPG), an operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations across the UK, Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
