Structural growth, low volatility and high income
Ecofin Global Utilities and Infrastructure Trust (EGL) invests in utilities and other economic infrastructure equities and is looking to deliver a total return of 6-12% per annum to shareholders over time. These sectors are traditionally less volatile than global equities in general, and the manager expects strong demand for infrastructure spending globally and attractive returns for providers of capital. We think that EGL, with its focus on growth, capital preservation and a high level of income (EGL currently offers a yield of 5.2%), should be attractive to investors. The current discount of 12.9% offers comfort and an opportunity.

Drum Income Plus REIT
Delivering on promises
DRUM Income Plus REIT (DRIP), which focuses on acquiring properties overlooked by large institutional and overseas buyers (smaller lot sizes, multi-let), provided an NAV total return of 2.4% in Q1 2017 including a 0.8% capital return. Its most recent acquisitions (the latest, Kew Retail Park, was announced on 11 May) were made at particularly attractive net initial yields and the manager is engaged in a number of asset management initiatives that should further improve income from the portfolio. DRIP recently issued equity; it remains small, but still has a strong desire to grow, with the aims of increasing its cost efficiency and liquidity.

A consistent dividend payer with a high yield

India Capital Growth Fund
Full steam ahead
With last year’s successful subscription share exercise pushing India Capital Growth (IGC)’s net assets through the £100m mark; strong performance relative to peers; and buoyant conditions in India, the focus now is on driving down IGC’s discount. Recent poll success by the BJP has put a stamp of approval on the party’s ambitious reform agenda. We may see a temporary dip in growth as the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is introduced this summer, but this should have long-term positive effects. The discount appears perverse to us. India remains one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world and IGC is positioned to take advantage of this.
