A champion for shareholders
A quick look at the steps which the Board of Keystone Investment Trust plc (Keystone) has taken to make things better for shareholders…
The foundation of your portfolio
The investment approach is one of active, valuation-focused stock picking. With a typical investment horizon of three years, and regular interaction with company management, the portfolio manager is unconstrained and the holdings in the trust can deviate meaningfully from the benchmark.
Valuation is key, with 35%-45% of AUM held in the top 10 holdings.

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 product uses derivatives for efficient portfolio management which may result in increased volatility in the NAV.
The use of borrowings may increase the volatility of the NAV and may reduce returns when asset values fall.
The product invests in smaller companies which may result in a higher level of risk than a product that invests in larger companies. Securities of smaller companies may be subject to abrupt price movements and may be less liquid, which may mean they are not easy to buy or sell.
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.
