The Diverse Income Trust’s investment objective is to provide an attractive and growing level of dividends, coupled with capital growth over the long term. It invests in a diversified portfolio primarily of quoted or traded UK companies across the market cap spectrum, with a bias to high-quality small- and mid-cap stocks. The stock-specific approach means the trust’s portfolio does not track a benchmark index.

Overview

The Diverse Income Trust’s (DIVI’s) managers Gervais Williams and Martin Turner focus on generating a dividend income stream that is more resilient and has the potential to grow faster than those of the trust’s peers. They believe that over time this strategy should lead to superior capital appreciation as well as income growth. Since launch in 2011, DIVI’s dividend has compounded at an average annual rate of around 6%. UK stocks have been out of favour with global investors, who now make up around two-thirds of the UK shareholder base compared with 17% in 1994. As a result, the UK market looks very attractively valued in both absolute and relative terms, so there may be considerable upside potential from an improvement in sentiment towards UK stocks.
