10 Most Popular Investment Trusts in Q3

Discover which investment trusts have been on other investors' radars over the summer months

Holly Cook 7 October, 2013 | 1:07PM

Investors appear to have used the seasonally-quiet summer months of 2013 as an opportunity to continue their hunt for, and research of, investment trusts. Morningstar.co.uk has recorded strong footfall on our investment trust pages, with many of the usual suspects appearing in our top ten most researched trusts by website users in the third quarter. 

"While there is variety among the income targets of these funds, with the likes of JEO aiming for total return rather than a fixed income yield, all trusts have a demonstrable track record in delivering steady incremental dividend growth on which investors can rely," says Morningstar director of closed-end fund research Jackie Beard. 

Compared to the previous quarter, Personal Assets Trust (PNL) and Scottish Oriental Smaller Companies Trust (SST) have both dropped out of the top ten, to be replaced by Temple Bar, which offers exposure to UK large caps, and Acorn Income, a trust investing in small caps.
