The Value and Income Trust plc (ticker: VIN) is unique amongst investment trusts in that it invests both in UK equities and direct property. We manage the equities element in a similar way to our specialised funds. The property portfolio is managed by OLIM Property. Further details can be found in the trust prospectus and reports. The share price and an interactive share price chart can be viewed on www.londonstockexchange.com (search for the stock under “VIN”). And all stock exchange announcements, including the Month End NAV announcements, can be viewed here too.
Value and Income Trust plc currently conducts its affairs so that the shares and debentures issued by it can be recommended by independent financial advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Value and Income Trust’s shares and debentures are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares and debentures in a UK listed investment trust. A full list of excluded securities can be found on the AIC website.
Our investment approach is shaped by six core beliefs
Value: We invest where the price does not reflect fair value
Size: Small can equal greater growth potential
Fundamental: Analysis is essential
Independent: We ignore market noise and current fashions
Patient: We wait for the right time to invest
Long term: Frequent trading does not always equal good investing
