    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!

  • 1.50%
    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).

  • 1.66%
    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.

    Yield

    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…

Prices as at 23 November 2020, fund data last updated 03 August 2012

The fund’s objective is to provide a high level of income, with capital values keeping pace with inflation. The fund converted to a global mandate in July 2013, having previously invested primarily in UK stocks. The management duo James Inglis-Jones and Samantha Gleave eschew meeting company management in favour of a forensic analysis of company accounts, in particular their cash flow, to find around 30 high yielding stocks.

Investment process

The process is based on the managers’ belief that the profit forecasts of company managers and stockmarkets are inaccurate, and that historic cash flows provide a better guide to future performance. They do not meet company management or use broker research, instead relying on forensic analysis of companies’ annual reports and accounts. They start by screening the market based on proprietary definitions of two ratios, cash flow relative to operating assets (which gives an idea of profitability) and cash flow relative to market value (to give an idea of valuation). Within this universe they target companies with higher yields – the overall yield target for the portfolio is 2% above that of long dated gilts. They then undertake due diligence on the individual stocks using company accounts, looking to verify that the cash flow figures accurately reflect the investment opportunity. Once bought, stocks are held for an average of 2-2.5 years.

Gary West and James Inglis-Jones took over this fund in 2009 following the departure from Liontrust of the highly regarded Jeremy Lang. Samantha Gleave replaced West as co-manager in 2013 following the latter's retirement.

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.
