What are the risks?

  • Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
  • The Company invests in smaller companies that may be less liquid than in larger companies and price swings may therefore be greater than investment companies that invest in larger companies.
  • The Company will invest solely in the companies of one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.
  • As a result of the fees and finance costs being charged partially to capital, the distributable income of the Company may be higher but there is the potential that performance or capital value may be eroded.
  • The Company may borrow money to invest in further investments, this is known as gearing. Gearing will increase returns if the value of the investments purchased increase in value by more than the cost of borrowing, or reduce returns if they fail to do so.

Non-Mainstream Pooled Investments (NMPI) Status

The Company currently conducts its affairs so that its shares can be recommended by IFAs to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA's rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Understanding risk around Investment Trusts

Investment trusts as a portfolio diversification strategy

9 considerations when comparing Investment Trusts and Unit Trusts

  

Investment trust winners of 2016

We examine the performance of major investment trust sectors, including UK equity income, Asia, Japan and UK property.


Could investment trusts provide an answer to investing for children?

As the costs of university, property and weddings continue to climb, saving for children has never been so important. With interest rates being so low at the moment, it is difficult to find cash accounts that pay a decent rate of interest – and one that beats inflation.


How investment trusts could help boost retirement savings

With life expectancy across the UK rising at a surprisingly fast rate, pension provision from company and state pensions being less generous, and poor returns from traditional savings such as cash and gilts, having enough cash to last for the whole of retirement is a sure-fire goal for most people.

How to Invest

We recommend you seek financial advice from an Independent Adviser before making an investment decision.

What are the risks?

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.  The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and investors might not get back the amount originally invested.

Some trusts invest solely in the companies of, or in property located in, one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.

Investors in the emerging markets and the Far East should be aware that this involves a high degree of risk and should be seen as long term in nature.

Exchange rates may cause the value of investments denominated in currencies other than sterling, and the income from them, to rise or fall.
