Bitesize briefing – Murray Income Trust

Published on 8 February 2019

Murray Income Trust is a UK equity income investment trust whose manager, Aberdeen Standard Investments’ Charles Luke, seeks to achieve a high and growing income, along with capital growth. While mainly invested in UK equities, the trust may hold up to 20% of its portfolio overseas, in order to diversify sources of income and gain exposure to areas that are under-represented in the UK stock market. In this video, investment trusts analyst Sarah Godfrey presents an overview of Murray Income Trust, covering its investment process, which has been enhanced by the merger of Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life Investments in 2017, and the manager’s investment themes. She also looks at the trust’s performance record and discusses other factors such as its higher-than-average dividend yield and low ongoing charges.
