From Close OLIM UK Equity Income Fund
The current investment climate offers investors some significant headwinds:
- Interest rates on cash are close to zero.
- Gilt yields are modest and vulnerable to a reversal of quantitative easing.
- Corporate bond yields are only slightly higher than gilts. Like gilts they offer no protection from inflation.
By contrast some parts of the UK equity market offer exciting opportunities for astute investors. The average yield on the FTSE 350 Higher Yield Index is 5.5%. This is well above the 3.7% offered by the broader FTSE 350 index (31/12/15).
The Close OLIM UK Equity Income Fund is well placed to take advantage of this opportunity, with its focus on investing in high quality, income-generating companies. In this way the fund is structured to deliver strong total returns for investors through both capital growth and dividend income.
Our unit trust aims to achieve long term capital growth together with a yield at least 10% above that of the FTSE All Share before expenses. The minimum investment is £1000. The fund has no initial charge and no exit or redemption penalties. The annual management charge is 0.75%.
