UK Equity Income funds have been the most popular areas for UK retail investment in eight of the last 12 months. Investors clearly remain very focused on the importance of deriving income from their investments. Whether it is from Murray International Trust, with a 5.33% yield, with its material weighting to Asia and Emerging Markets, The City of London Investment Trust yielding 3.93%, with its cautious approach to investment in predominantly UK equities or the concentrated and extremely patient approach followed at Finsbury Growth & Income Trust, yielding 2.07%, the trend is very clear.

Whilst all of these Morningstar Gold rated investment companies offer investors differing approaches to investment the one thing that they all have in common is that they benefit from some of the very best managers of their generation whom we continue to hold in very high regard at Morningstar.
