Investment summary

Canadian General Investments (CGI) is a closed-end investment fund listed on both the TSX and LSE; it is registered as a Canadian investment corporation. CGI aims to outperform the benchmark S&P/TSX index by investing in an actively managed portfolio of primarily Canadian stocks. Given its diversified exposure to the Canadian equity market, CGI could be viewed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for investment in the country. It has a progressive dividend policy; emphasis has shifted to quarterly rather than year-end special dividends. The 2016 prospective yield is 3.6%. High share ownership by related parties ensures that management’s and shareholders’ interests are closely aligned – although it may also be a factor in the wider than average discount.
