Comments from NexxtGen Markets Founder, Steve Halls:

"It has been another very interesting month. I am delighted to finish on a high with a really good return of 4.02%, but let me tell you that we were in negative figures right up until the last trading week! Highlights for me were our notable gains on NVIDIA, which reported record-breaking quarterly earnings. Additionally, our investments in Manchester United, Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund continue to show good progress. Dortmund will be playing in the Champions League final this weekend against Real Madrid, Juventus has won the Coppa Italia, and Manchester United triumphed in the FA Cup against their fierce rivals Manchester City just last weekend."
