Investment Trust Insider: the Trojan Horse issue!
Issue 31 of our free e-zine rides in with a must-read profile of Personal Assets' Sebastian Lyon and the latest analyst recommendations.
Welcome to issue 31 of Investment Trust Insider! This month's edition includes:
We speak to Sebastian Lyon, manager of Personal Assets (PNL ) investment trust, a pioneer in ‘absolute return’ investing, who aims to preserve shareholders’ wealth as well as grow it. Lyon talks about the two mentors in his life: Lord Weinstock, the former industrialist who backed the launch of his firm Troy Asset Management and whose race horse provided its name; and Ian Rushbrook, the trust’s former manager who set the path he would follow.
Lyon discusses his strategy for protecting investors and explains why the world could yet fact its biggest financial crisis yet.
Charges: trusts vs funds
The abolition of commission payments to financial advisers has had a big impact on the charges investors pay. Open-ended investment funds are now cheaper to buy, although, as we reveal, investment trusts retain their price advantage in most key sectors.
Buy, sell, hold
A round-up of analysts’ views on leading investment trusts, including one who has downgraded RIT Capital Partners (RCP) after a good year for the Rothschild family-backed fund.
