The last few days have seen a definite recovery in risk assets, especially in equities which rose by 4.8 per cent last week. Because of this latest rebound, the half year ended on Thursday with all the major asset classes up so far in 2011, albeit not by much.

Commodities, which had led the way for most of the period, ended the half year up by 1.6 per cent.
