The Diverse Income Trust plc (LON:DIVI) is the topic of conversation when Victoria Chernykh, Investment Director at Edison Group joins DirectorsTalk. Victoria explains why the trust keeps outperforming its peers, shares her thoughts on whether now is a good time to invest in a UK multi-cap with a small cap tilt, why DIVI´s fund managers are optimistic about the UK economy and stock markets recovery, portfolio highlights and will the dividend keep growing?
The Diverse Income Trust invests primarily in quoted or traded UK companies with a wide range of market capitalisations, but a long-term bias toward small and medium sized companies.
The Company may also invest in large companies, including FTSE 100 Index constituents, where it is believed that this may increase shareholder value.
The Managers adopt a stock specific approach in managing the Company’s portfolio and therefore the amount apportioned to a particular industry sector is of secondary consideration. As a result of this approach, the Company’s portfolio does not track any index.
