Baring Emerging Europe (BEE) offers an unusual combination of high-alpha stockpicking, with a portfolio exhibiting strong growth credentials and decent dividend income.
The trust has outperformed its benchmark in six of the past eight years, as well as being within the top five in the open-ended fund peer group of similar funds over all time frames.
BEE’s yield of 3.9% puts it firmly in the top quartile of all equity investment trusts in terms of yield. The board have supplemented the dividend with revenue reserves, but the manager is positive on underlying dividend growth given Russia’s improving payout ratios.
The trust currently trades on a discount of 10.5%.
