About this trust
- To provide superior capital growth and outperform the MSCI All Country World Index over the long term by investing in companies based around the world. The Company is proposing to amend its distribution policy for the year commencing on 1st July 2016. The Company will pay quarterly dividends which will be set at the beginning of its financial year. On aggregate, these payments will equal to at least 4% of the NAV at the time of announcement. The manager is focused on building a high conviction portfolio of typically 50 – 90 stocks, drawing on an investment process underpinned by fundamental research. Portfolio construction is driven by bottom-up stock selection rather than geographical or sector allocation. Currency exposure is predominantly hedged back towards the benchmark. The Company uses borrowing to gear the portfolio within a range of 5% cash to 20 geared under normal market conditions. The Company will repurchase its shares with the aim of maintaining an average discount of around 5% calculated with debt at par value.
