The Growth Portfolio

Our ten investment trust picks for long-term capital growth...
Last update 30 January 2019

The core of the shortlist is a series of equity trusts with high alpha-generating potential. By considering the information ratio of the trust’s NAV performance, we have aimed to identify those that have managed to add the greatest value for the extra risk they have taken relative to their benchmark - in other words, those which best exemplify the benefits of active management. We have then used our qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis of the market environment to judge whether we expect outperformance in the future.

Kepler Trust Intelligence provides research and information for professional and private investors. In order to ensure that we provide you with the right kind of content, and to ensure that the content we provide is compliant, you need to tell us what type of investor you are.
