How we invest

Strong company fundamentals are of central importance in building the portfolio. As part of his fundamental analysis of a company, this experienced fund manager asks a number of questions: Is it a good company? Is the management team on the shareholder’s side? What is the dividend yield and will it grow? Are the shares attractively valued?

Together with a focus on a number key themes – Industrial and support services, UK Domestic value, International opportunities, and Regulated utilities – appropriate use of gearing is used to potentially enhance returns.**

** Gearing: the trust can borrow money in order to buy more assets. This can increase returns but can also magnify losses.

Investment risks

  • The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.

    When making an investment in an investment trust you are buying shares in a company that is listed on a stock exchange. The price of the shares will be determined by supply and demand. Consequently, the share price of an investment trust may be higher or lower than the underlying net asset value of the investments in its portfolio and there can be no certainty that there will be liquidity in the shares.

    The use of borrowings may increase the volatility of the NAV and may reduce returns when asset values fall.

    As a result of COVID-19, markets have seen a noticeable increase in volatility as well as, in some cases, lower liquidity levels; this may continue and may increase these risks in the future. In addition, some companies are suspending, lowering or postponing their dividend payments, which may affect the income received by the product during this period and in the future.
