  • Dividends

    Through its past commitment to pay shareholders a dividend of 6% based on the net asset value on 31 December each year the trust has offered an attractive level of yield – both in absolute terms and relative to other asset classes.  As a result we believe that it offers investors a viable income option and its inclusion within a balanced portfolio could serve to ideally complement more traditional income orientated equity funds.  Investors seeking long-term capital appreciation meanwhile can choose to reinvest dividends in order to enhance their growth potential.

    With effect from January 2018 the trust will pay its annual dividend in four equal instalments in January, April, July and October. Previously the Trust paid its dividend in three equal instalments
