Investment summary

Seneca Global Income & Growth Trust (SIGT) aims to generate income and long-term capital growth across multiple asset classes with low volatility. The trust adopts a long-term strategic asset allocation to equities (60%, split 35% to UK and 25% to overseas – with modest US exposure), fixed income (15%) and specialist assets (25%, generally yielding 5-8%). Shorter-term tactical asset allocations are made with a view to enhancing portfolio returns. For UK equity exposure, SIGT focuses on mid-cap companies, which over time tend to outperform the broader market. SIGT retains zero exposure to developed market government bonds, which the manager considers expensive. Following the change in mandate in 2012, SIGT’s NAV total return has outperformed the FTSE All-Share index, with significantly lower volatility; while dividends and reserves have grown every year.
