Investment summary

Alliance Trust (ATST) is a global equity investment trust differentiated by its focus on sustainable businesses and long-term investment in subsidiaries. Significant changes announced in October 2015 give ATST a simpler organisational structure and clarify the investment proposition. Measures include focusing on the global equity portfolio, introducing the MSCI AC World index as a formal performance benchmark for the trust, appointing ATI as investment manager with a 0.35% fee and a target 0.45% ongoing charge, confirming the progressive dividend policy and committing to share buybacks to help maintain the discount below 10%.
