Company news

Investment summary

The Brunner Investment Trust (BUT) is now a much more focused global equity proposition compared with mid-2016: there is a single manager, running a single portfolio (rather than one UK and one overseas), performance has improved and the board has paid off the trust’s longstanding, high-cost debt. Manager Lucy Macdonald believes that the investment cycle is mature, characterised by peak levels of liquidity, earnings growth and equity valuations, suggesting investors should gravitate towards quality companies that can generate above-average returns on investment. BUT has a distinguished dividend track record; its annual distribution has increased for the last 46 consecutive years.
