M&G trust loses S&P rating

The M&G managed income unit trust has lost its Standard & Poor&#39s fund research rating because of poor performance.

The £1.2bn fund managed by Richard Pluchett did have a single A rating but is now unrated because S&P said the trust “did not pass our quantitative screening process” in its most recent survey of managed funds.

Two other funds suffered the same fate, with the £22m Framlington managed distribution and £20m Stewart Ivory managed equity portfolios both losing their ratings.

S&P&#39s review is based on performance data up to 1 September 2000.
