Investment Trust Insider: issue 27 out now!
Stock market falls at the start of the year were worrying but have resulted in improved value for investment trust investors.
Quality goes cheap
The stock market turbulence we’ve seen this year has been alarming but it does create opportunities for long-term investors, which we explore in this month’s issue of Investment Trust Insider.
How to profit from discounts
The fall in share prices has left a large number of investment trusts on cheap valuations with their shares trading on discounts below net asset value. Bargain hunters need to tread carefully, however, as cheap does not mean good. This article shows where the best opportunities lie and hears from analysts who recommend using volatile markets to find quality trusts trading on low levels.
Six trusts for a value revival
We continue the bargain-hunting theme with a look at ‘value’ investing, a style of stock picking that buys cheap, undervalued companies, which itself has been out of favour since the financial crisis. There are signs, however, that value could make a comeback as ‘growth’ investing struggles against the difficult economic backdrop. We speak to leading investors and fund managers about the pros and cons of value investing and highlight six investment trusts that could benefit from a value revival.

We hear from three leading investment trust managers on the challenges and opportunities they see for dividend investors.
