Our Investment Trusts

The Mercantile Investment Trust Chapter 2.2 2.2



The trust is launched

Discovering developing firms is our passion 

The UK market leaders of tomorrow are outside the FTSE 100 at present and have significant room for growth. The leading UK equity trust* seeks opportunities that go unrecognised by other investors.

  • Expertise: Headed by Fund Managers Guy Anderson, Martin Hudson and Anthony Lynch, the trust has assets of more than £2 billion and 130 years of experience
  • Portfolio: We focus on UK companies outside the FTSE 100, with established track records and significant room for growth, that have not yet been recognised by other investors
  • Results: The trust aims to achieve capital growth by concentrating on a diverse portfolio of small and medium-sized businesses. Investors receive quarterly dividends

Over the last decade, the FTSE 250 has outperformed the FTSE 100 in seven of the 10 calendar years to 2018… as the big companies wish to get bigger what they are often doing is acquiring smaller companies and many of those are in the mid- and small-cap part of the world.
