About our speakers
M&G Credit Income | MGCI
M&G Credit Income offers investors an income linked to interest rates, aiming to generate a yield of at least 4% over the interbank rate. The trust, which currently yields a 3.2% dividend yield, invests across the fixed income universe, in private debt as well as public, offering exposure to sectors more commonly available to institutional investors. Much of the portfolio is floating rate, which means the income available to pay the dividend could potentially rise as central banks raise rates.
Invesco Bond Income Plus | BIPS
Invesco Bond Income Plus aims to generate a high level of income and capital growth via a portfolio of high yield bonds, diversified across numerous countries and industries. BIPS is another of the highest yielding vehicles we will hear from this week, offering a dividend yield of 6.2%.
International Biotechnology Trust | IBT
International Biotechnology is primarily formed of listed equities in the biotech space, plus a small allocation toward unquoted companies, and converts some of the capital growth it generates into income using a unique feature of the investment trust structure, offering a yield equivalent to 4% of NAV. The managers have increased gearing recently to take advantage of what they see as bombed out valuations in a market with great potential for a rebound.
Edinburgh Investment Trust | EDIN
Edinburgh Investment Trust is one of the oldest and best-known UK equity income trusts in the business. We will find out where the management team plans to take it as fund manager James de Uphaugh continues his stewardship of the trust as head of the Global Fundamental team at Liontrust Asset Management, which bought former manager, Majedie where he was CIO, earlier this year. EDIN yields 3.9% via a portfolio wholly focused on UK equities.
JPMorgan Global Core Real Assets | JARA
JPMorgan Global Core Real Assets was launched in late 2019 – shortly before the global pandemic began to bite. Having survived this baptism of fire the trust, which invests in real assets across a broad mix including real estate, infrastructure and transport, has recorded strong returns over one year and has seen its discount narrow as a result. JARA’s shares yield 4.4%, with its portfolio now fully invested.
