Caledonia dividend up

19 May 2016 09:45

Caledonia Investments' achieved a net asset value total return of 2.6% in the year to the end of March in a period when markets fell.

The annual dividend is up 4.0% to 52.6p per share, the 49th consecutive annual increase and the group reports continued outperformance against the FTSE All-Share over ten years.

It said volatility in the global equity markets was more than offset by the strong performance from the Unquoted and Funds pools.

Chief executive Will Wyatt said: "Caledonia has reported another year of positive performance, demonstrating the continued effectiveness of our longer term investment strategy. We achieved an NAV total return of 2.6% in a year when markets fell and increased the annual dividend by 4%, the 49th consecutive year of dividend growth.

"Our investment strategy focuses on high quality businesses and funds providing shareholders with a balanced exposure to asset classes and markets. This has been key in our ability to maintain our outperformance of the FTSE All-Share over the long term. Markets remain volatile, however, we are confident that our investment strategy will continue to deliver its return objectives over the long term, including a sustainable growing annual dividend."

At 9:45am: (LON:CLDN) Caledonia Investments Plc share price was -2p at 2422p
