Tim noted : ‘The directors of the company, last week announced a fourth quarterly interim dividend of 5.5 pence per share, in relation to the year ended 31st March 2021. Whilst it’s been a very eventful year, the flexibility of the investment trust format has helped the manager deliver excellent NAV performance but also strong dividend growth. The final dividend of 5.5p brings the year’s total to 21.9p which is up 23.7% over the previous year, and represents a historic yield of just over 3.9%.’
