Edinburgh Investment Trust plc (LSE:EDI)


The Edinburgh Investment Trust PLC, a constituent of the FTSE 250 and established in 1889, is an investment trust that gives investors an exposure to large companies and invests 20 per cent of the portfolio in overseas markets in the US, Canada, France, Switzerland, and the Netherland.  The company's business comprises a pooled fund by investors and shareholders in accordance with the specific investment objective and strategy. The company's investment portfolio mainly includes pharmaceuticals, food producers, food and drug retail, biotechnology, healthcare, mining, aerospace, oil and gas, life insurance and industrial engineering.

The company's main objective is to increase Net Asset Value per share compared to the FTSE All-share index and growth in dividends that can offset inflation. The trust is managed by James de Uphaugh, who is the Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of Majedie Asset Management, along with Chris Field, Executive Director at the Majedie Asset Management, and a team of 20 fund managers and analysts. The portfolio constructed by him majorly depends on the fundamental research done by the team, which produces a robust result aligning with the reputation of the company.

The flexible investment process offered by the company is not rule-based or biased towards a strategy but a discretionary approach that delivers a differentiated and well-diversified portfolio of equities. Investment decisions do consider the ESG factors so that the fund can uphold the interests of all stakeholders.

The fund's primary aim is to produce and deliver long-term returns beating the benchmark regardless of the market and economic conditions. Another crucial parameter for selecting stocks is the dividend. The fund primarily invests in high dividend paying growth companies, which help contribute significantly to the fund's corpus and CAGR. The company has a Board of Directors, majorly non-executive who monitor all the activities.
