View Bio

The BMO Capital and Income Investment Trust PLC offers the best of both worlds; the potential for long-term capital growth and a regular, growing income.

Highlights of the BMO Capital and Income Investment Trust PLC:

  • Dividends increased annually since launch in 1992, paid quarterly and grown significantly faster than inflation
  • Diversified portfolio focusing on well-established UK companies
  • Targets long-term capital and income growth.

Objectives

Focused on generating capital growth and an attractive income.
 
The Company seeks to achieve this objective by investing in companies which have good long-term prospects with attractive returns on invested capital, but whose share prices may not fully reflect this. This could be because of adverse sentiment, possibly from short-term difficulties, or simply because they are unfashionable. Many of the stocks purchased have a higher than average dividend yield.

Investment Risks

The value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Gearing is used for investment purposes to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to an asset, index or investment. The use of gearing can enhance returns to investors in a rising market, but if the market falls the losses may be greater
