Alliance Trust (ATST) offers a multi-manager fund for investors looking for a diversified global portfolio. The trust incorporates the ideas of 10 best-of-breed stock-pickers into a high conviction portfolio spread across a range of sectors and geographies.
The trust’s performance is testament to the success of this approach, with the trust delivering a top-quartile performance for share price returns over the last one, three and five years (as at 30/01/2024). Alliance Trust is also one of only a handful of companies awarded ‘dividend hero’ status by the AIC, having consistently increased its dividends for an impressive 56 years in a row. ATST recently introduced a dedicated Japan allocation as corporate governance reforms continue to prove a strong growth driver.
We are delighted to welcome Stuart Gray, co-manager of Alliance Trust, to the stage for our webinar, in which he’ll provide an update on the current positioning of the portfolio and the outlook for multi-manager funds.
There will be a question-and-answer session in the second half of the webinar. Viewers can submit questions in advance of the event by emailing [email protected] or during the event itself.
