AAA-rated Horner: Small-cap income and trusts go hand in hand

David Horner, a Citywire AAA-rated manager, shares his thoughts on investing for income in small-caps with Wealth Manager.

He runs both the open-ended Chelverton UK Equity Income and two closed-ended funds, Chelverton Growth Trust and Small Companies Dividend Trust, but explains why he prefers the latter.

Over the past three years Chelverton UK Equity Income has returned 69.5%, compared with an average of 37.4% from its IMA UK Equity Income peer group.

The Chelverton Growth Trust has returned 100% through the same period, and the Small Companies Dividend Trust 114%. The equivalent figure from the FTSE All Share has been 27.8%.
