it is a lonely world investing where this fund goes but it is their belief, and through evidence of past investing, this is where the best returns will come from
In a market awash with UK Income Funds how does an investor search out something that is a little different and has the potential to outperform over the long term. Naturally investors will gravitate to the big names like Artemis, Invesco and Woodford but these tend to focus on similar stocks which some argue are overvalued and offer very little in growth opportunities moving forward. (These managers would of course argue differently).
We have highlighted some alternatives and the Schroder Income Fund is another option to consider. Performance over the last five years hasn’t necessarily been something to shout about but long term it has a good track record. Providing some background to the fund the co-fund manager Nick Kirrage explained that they manage a number of strategies from income to growth with a focus on the UK and globally but in all cases the philosophy is the same with a focus on value.
