Is it for me?
Henderson Global Trust should be considered by investors who want their investment manager to focus on growing capital over medium to long term from a select number of hand picked stocks from anywhere across the world - normally 40 stocks represent 80% of the portfolio. It is an option for investors prepared to accept the greater risk and potential rewards associated with a focused portfolio of stocks.
What does it do?
Henderson Global Trust invests in a concentrated portfolio of shares from countries around the world. It focuses on growing capital by investing in shares of large companies with 80% of the portfolio normally held in 40 stocks. The trust actively manages the level of discount between the Net Asset Value per share and the share price. It aims to outperform by at least 2% the composite benchmark, which compromises 50% FTSE All-Share Index and 50% Morgan Stanley Capital World Index ex-UK. This is a target not a guarantee.
