  • 529.70p
    Price (Inc)

    These are the shares in the fund that pay out an income to clients. The income is made up of the total dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – from the companies in the fund.

  • 1147.00p
    Price (Acc)

    These are the shares in the fund that don’t pay out an income to clients. Any dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – are reinvested into companies in the fund. Despite no income, the shares should be worth more over time. Good incentive, eh?

    Initial charge

    Some funds charge you when you first invest, which is aptly known as the initial charge. They’re usually between 3-5% but at Bestinvest, we usually don’t charge you a penny!

  • 0.75%
    Annual management charge

    This is how much the fund management company charges to run the fund. It’s like paying a babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter (that makes well-informed, heavily researched changes to improve your baby/dog/house when needed).

  • 0.84%
    Ongoing charges

    This stands for Ongoing Charges Figure. It’s the cost of running a fund and includes admin fees, manager fees, administration costs, etc.

  • 3.20%

    How much the fund is currently paying out in income to investors. It’s NOT to be confused with the overall growth of a fund – a very different thing indeed. It’s also NOT a guarantee of future pay-outs, just a snapshot. This is more what it’s not than what it is…

Investment process

This fund is an income and growth fund that aims to identify undervalued companies that offer good prospects for growth and dividends through bottom up stock selection and risk controls. The stock universe from which ideas are generated includes more than 900 names from the FTSE All-Share Index and AiM. These ideas are generated through both external research and internal analysis conducted primarily by Henderson’s Value & Income Team as well as Henderson’s Fixed Income and Equity teams. Although internal analysis includes quantitative screening and valuation analysis, centered on assessing potential dividend growth, the most significant determinants are qualitative analysis and company meetings. In general, the portfolio is a blend of large cap, high yielding stocks with recovery and turnaround plays from the under-researched small and mid cap sectors of the UK markets.

James Henderson follows a value approach to investing and is prepared to invest across the whole market cap spectrum. He has built a successful track record over his career, although his contrarian approach to investment has meant that the fund has been volatile. There have also been prolonged periods when the manager’s style has been out of favour and hence the fund has underperformed during such periods. The open-ended Henderson UK Equity Income fund is similar to the London-listed closed-ended Lowland Investment Company (LSE:LWI) run by the same manager.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
