The Edinburgh Investment Trust plc
“I am pleased to report that Majedie’s James de Uphaugh is the Company’s new portfolio manager. James is a highly experienced active manager with a flexible investment approach. The Board believes that he has the right approach to meet our Company’s twin objectives of capital appreciation and dividend growth over the long term.” Glen Suarez, Chairman.
Edinburgh Investment Trust offers exposure primarily to UK-listed equities. It may also hold up to 20% of assets in equities listed overseas.
The Company invests primarily in UK securities with the long term objective of achieving:
1. An increase of the Net Asset Value per share in excess of the growth in the FTSE All-Share Index; and
2. Growth in dividends per share in excess of the rate of UK inflation.
It is managed by James de Uphaugh, the Chief Investment Officer of Majedie Asset Management. He constructs a high conviction portfolio of c.40 holdings based on fundamental company research. James is supported by a collegiate team of 20 fund managers and analysts. Together, they have deep knowledge of markets and a rigorous approach to investment analysis.
Majedie’s flexible investment process delivers a differentiated, diversified portfolio of listed equities. Investment decisions are stock-driven, with ESG factors considered throughout. This work is underpinned by the research of an experienced team of investment analysts with a global perspective. There are no in-built investment style biases. Instead, opportunities are sought across the market: ‘growth’, ‘value’ and ‘recovery’ stocks will all typically be held. The aim of James and his colleagues is to deliver long-term added value regardless of economic and market conditions.
