Investment summary

The Brunner Investment Trust (BUT) is a well-established fund investing in a relatively concentrated portfolio of c 70 global equities, aiming to generate long-term growth in capital and income. Over time, the number of holdings has been reduced and the proportion invested in overseas equities has increased. Lucy Macdonald has been sole manager since June 2016, and now uses her bottom-up stock selection process to invest in both UK and overseas companies. BUT’s style balance between growth and value stocks meant that relative performance was maintained during a significant market style shift from growth to value stocks in Q416. BUT has increased its annual dividend in each of the last 45 consecutive years; its current yield of 2.3% compares favourably with its peer group.
