Investment summary

Finsbury Growth & Income Trust (FGT) has been managed by Nick Train since 2000; he runs a concentrated portfolio of 25-30 primarily UK equities, aiming to generate growth in capital and income. Despite a period of underperformance in CY16, as result of the outperformance of cyclical companies where FGT has minimal exposure, its performance track record remains intact. It has outperformed its benchmark, the FTSE All-Share index, over one, three, five and 10 years. FGT has a progressive dividend policy and the 2016 annual dividend was increased by 8.3% versus the prior year. As a result of continued capital appreciation and investor demand, FGT’s assets under management now exceed £1bn.
