The UK economy is growing, the Budget has boosted the domestic stock market and the pound is looking stable. If you’re feeling bullish on UK equities, consider these investment trusts for a core holding in your ISA portfolio. They all have an income bias, so you can choose to be paid the yield tax-free within your ISA wrapper, or accumulate the payments and benefit from compound interest.

These five investment trusts carry either a Gold or Silver Morningstar analyst rating, and were identified as highly rated and outperforming using the free Morningstar Closed-end Fund Screener.
