INVESTMENT IDEAS

Featured Strategy: UK Equities

GAM UK Equity Income is a core equity income fund aiming to deliver steady income and capital growth. The fund is managed by an experienced team, Adrian Gosden and Chris Morrison, who apply their proven cash flow-based investment approach to invest in companies with strong dividend prospects. The result is an active, concentrated and liquid portfolio diversified across sectors and market caps.

REASONS TO INVEST

Disciplined approach

Equity income managers typically take a long-term view, as reinvested dividends can make a huge difference to returns over time, due to the power of compounding.

Steady income

Dividends are typically much less volatile than earnings and can deliver steady income for investors. Dividend growth has held up consistently in recent years.

Consistent returns

Equity income funds can be a reliable investment in periods of lower growth and market volatility, as companies are often reluctant to cut dividend payments.

Appeal in a low-rate environment

The current UK dividend yield premium over government bond yields is considerable. Low rates support the case for investing in a UK dividend- orientated strategy.
