Edison update on Bankers Investment Trust

14 March 2016 14:46

Edison has issued a research update on The Bankers Investment Trust.

Edison says: "The Bankers Investment Trust (BNKR) is a long-established, globally invested fund with a focus on achieving long-term capital growth greater than that of the FTSE All-Share index, and above-inflation dividend growth. Lead manager Alex Crooke makes use of the substantial resources of Henderson Global Investors, delegating ex-UK stock selection to regional specialists. BNKR has recently achieved its 49th consecutive annual dividend increase, the joint-longest record in the investment company sector. A proposal to merge its stablemate Henderson Global Trust with Henderson International Income Trust could see BNKR - which will be offered as a rollover option to investors who wish to retain a global growth mandate - receive a boost to its assets under management.

"At 11 March 2016 BNKR's shares traded at a 6.3% discount to cum-income net asset value, narrower than the three-year widest point of 8.9% reached in mid-February but above the three-year average of 1.8%. The widening has largely occurred since the start of the year as investor risk aversion has risen. Having issued shares in order to manage a premium over the past two-and-a-half years, the board has recently undertaken four share buybacks to help manage the discount."
