What the Z-Score says about investment trusts

Become a better investment trust investor by learning about the 'Z-score'. Discounts and premiums aren't as cheap or dear as they might appear.

What the Z-Score says about investment trusts

Every bargain hunting investor knows that investment trusts trading on a discount below net asset value (NAV) can be a good buy, while trusts trading at a premium above NAV are expensive.

However, discounts and premiums by themselves don't tell you everything you need to know which is why investors need to consider the 'Z-score' when assessing investment trusts.

The latest issue of Investment Trust Insider introduces this important measure and shows how it works.

You can read 'The theme from Z-scores' here.
