• Capital and Income Investment Trust - NEW BANNER
  • The Trust looks to generate long-term capital and income growth from a portfolio consisting mainly of FTSE All-Share companies. The Trust is heavily biased towards companies that look capable of paying a reliable and growing income to shareholders. Given this emphasis the fund manager focuses on attractively valued, well established companies characterised by strong balance sheets and robust cash flow. The Trust looks to grow its dividend consistently over time and dividends are paid at the end of each calendar quarter.

  • Fund manager commentary

    After the strength of the FTSE All-Share in February (+3.1%), the gain of +1.2% in March seems a little understated. Over the last six months (the first half of our financial year, the FTSE All-Share has returned a total gain of +8.1%.

    One of the highlights of the last month was the strong results shown by Arrow Global, a debt recovery business. We invested in this company when it came to the stock market in 2013, since then it has grown its business strongly with the latest set of figures showing growth in profit, earnings and dividends of just under 30%. It generates a return on equity (co-incidentally) of 29% and despite this, trades on a Price / Earnings multiple for 2017 of less than 11%.

    We also saw good results from Melrose Industries which is making rapid progress with the improvement of Nortek, its latest acquisition.

    We invested in three new companies during the month, an unusually high number given our usual low rate of turnover. Ascential is a UK exhibition and information service business with strong positions in its own operating niches. Bovis, the UK housebuilder, has had some high-profile problems, but we were confident these were resolvable and indeed the subsequent appointment of Greg Fitzgerald, the well-respected former CEO of Galliford Try is encouraging. The third purchase was Ibstock, the brick and building supplies manufacturer. It operates in a highly consolidated market with strong barriers to entry in a market that should continue to see good levels of demand.
