Investment summary

Lowland Investment Company (LWI) is a UK equity income investment trust with a focus on growing capital and income. It has been managed since 1990 by James Henderson at Henderson Global Investors; during 2016 Laura Foll, who has assisted Henderson since 2013, was named joint manager. LWI invests in 100+ mainly UK companies across the market cap spectrum, generally with about one-third of its portfolio respectively in large, mid-cap and smaller stocks. It has recently increased its gearing with an issue of 30-year loan notes, locking in a long-term fixed borrowing cost of 3.15%. LWI’s managers note that they are finding many attractive opportunities to buy undervalued stocks with good long-term growth potential, at dividend yields that comfortably exceed the cost of borrowing. The discount is currently wider than longer-term averages.
