Global Income Growth Q4 investment update

Investment manager James Dow and investment specialist Seb Petit give an update on the Global Income Growth and Responsible Global Equity Income strategies covering Q4 2023.

Responsible and dependable growth

We aim to deliver a dependable income and real growth in capital over the long-term by investing in responsible companies.  

We believe the best way to do this is to invest in firms which can pay dependable dividends across the cycle; with the prospect of real profit growth, which will in turn lead to growth in dividends and capital.  

These are rare and highly attractive to clients seeking income today and well into the future. 

What do we mean by responsible? Beyond the exclusion of sin sectors, we mean investing in companies that are trying to address ESG issues and future-proofing their business. 

A carefully selected portfolio

Our portfolio is a collection of carefully selected dividend-paying companies with attractive growth prospects. 

Their sustainable earnings growth have the potential to support real growth in dividends, and they typically have resilient business models  

Our strategy is managed with a growth mindset and a lengthy time horizon, focusing on dividend growth, not short-term yield. 

Long-term dividend compounders are the unsung heroes of the market
