    The value of your investments can go down as well as up, and you may not get back what you originally invested.

  • Dividends

    F&C Capital and Income Investment Trust seeks to achieve its objective of long-term capital and income growth by investing in companies with good long-term prospects which may not be fully reflected in their share prices; many of its stocks have a higher than average dividend yield. While the majority of holdings are in large and mid-cap UK companies, the Trust also invests in some smaller companies.

    The Trust has built up an impressive record of paying dividends. In every year since the Trust’s launch in 1992, it has succeeded in increasing the dividend paid to investors. Since 1998, the Trust has beaten the average dividend paid by the broad UK stock market (as represented by the FTSE All-Share Index). It has also significantly outpaced the rate of inflation as measured by the CPI (Consumer Price Index).
    Maintaining a broadly diversified portfolio helps reduce risk and improves reliability. The fund manager has the flexibility to invest internationally to help secure superior dividends at the right price. This fund manager’s approach allows the Trust to achieve long-term growth in both income and capital.

    With dividends paid four times a year, the Trust is a great option for investors looking for a regular income. For investors with a longer-term horizon, taking the option to reinvest the dividends could be a highly effective way of increasing the total return from their investment.
    All in all this Trust is an effective solution for investors who want long-term capital and income growth.

    Past performance is not a guide to future results. The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount that you invested.
