Global growth in capital and income
Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust (FRCL) is a large, globally diversified fund investing directly and through funds in listed and private equity; external managers are used for some strategies. Performance in 2015 was strong and to the end of February 2016, NAV total returns were ahead of the benchmark over one, three, five and 10 years. A narrowing of the discount in 2015 added to share price total returns. The announced 2015 dividend of 9.6p represents the 45th consecutive annual increase.
