Selection rationale:
Murray International has grown its dividends, paid quarterly, for the past 16 years. Its five-year record is uninspiring, but we remain fans of the trust due to the manager’s experience, its attractive income qualities (both its consistent record of dividend payments and market-beating yield of 5.7%) and its focus on Asia Pacific and emerging market companies (which account for around 40% of the portfolio). The majority of other global income funds and trusts tend to mainly stick to shares listed in developed markets – US, UK and Europe.

Bruce Stout has been managing the trust since 2004, but his involvement dates back to the 1980s. He focuses on defensive businesses where he has a high degree of confidence that the companies can continue to deliver earnings and dividends, and not paying too high a price for them. Stout believes being able to invest globally gives him scope for great diversification, which helps to reduce volatility.

Classification change

The decision to reclassify Murray International from Global Equity Income/ Income to Global Equity Income/ Adventurous is in-line with our stated methodology. We have conducted a careful review of the risks associated with the trust, including the style of the manager and portfolio positioning as well as assessment of the sector.

In conclusion, we maintain our conviction in the manager and his process. The risk re-categorisation was needed due to the current, post sell-off market environment and the possibility of longer recovery periods for value investing.
