Henderson High Income appoints co-manager for Crooke

David Smith has been promoted to co-manager of the £209 million Henderson High Income , the investment trust run by Alex Crooke (pictured) since 1997.

HHI and Bankers are core holdings of mine and have been for a long time. I think the out performance of HHI is due to good management by Alex Crooke, including his handling of the trust's gearing.
