JEDT aims to provide capital growth from a diversified portfolio of smaller European companies (ex-UK). With JEDT’s focus on capital growth, shareholders should expect the dividend to vary from year to year. The company can borrow to gear the portfolio within a range of 20% net cash to 20% geared in normal market conditions.
JPMorgan European Discovery Trust (JEDT) aims to generate long-term capital growth from a portfolio of high-quality, reasonably valued, smaller European equities. The scale of opportunities in a relatively inefficient market gives active managers an excellent opportunity set for outperforming and delivering good long-term investor returns, and JEDT has a strong long-term investment track record but has been a little more challenged of late. The trust currently offers a 1.7% dividend yield.
