Me too. the only way I have found to outperform the market with some use of capital is to buy investment trusts in the troughs. All I am saying is I can't see it will be allowed to go on indefinitely because it is obvious discount mechanisms help the share price - which is what the board's of these trusts are meant to be doing!

I love that there's no "downside protection" as I've regularly been able to buy in cheaply. Also think people forget with ASCI that their divi is chunkier than most - so the performance from the charts (rather than from performance tables) looks less good than it really is.

Yep Nav at all time highs and share price tracking lower. Same on BRSC. RIII looking steady because they have a buy back in place and interesting to see HOT's performance after they announced a buyback policy. All these investment trusts are mad not to have some sort of NAV downside protection in place and at some point I suspect all of them will have.

A nice sell off nearing A50 being invoked may present an opportunity, may not happen, lets see. Recent NAV performance looks more than OK to me. Hoping we may have some wider equity weakness shortly.

On Trustnet, ASCI appears as sixth out of 20 mixed asset trusts with 18.9% NAV 1 year return. That puts it ahead of Capital Gearing, Ruffer, Henderson High Income,and CMHYT. All these trusts trade at a premium while ASCI trades at a 20% discount. Where do you get your facts from, MRF?

Superb wealth destruction here. Just give them a quid and they'll struggle to pass it on for more than 75 pence

Standard life smaller companies has done a pretty good job on the wealth creation side.

I see there are major concerns over this merger as it already triggering the departure of key fund managers.Investors are being told to avoid these funds altogether since many more of their funds are likely ti be left in limbo as more managers leave.When I was a full time investor five years ago or so, Standard Life were one of the worst offenders for investor wealth destruction. They would always without fail be the ones at the top of the chain throwing money at overpriced pie in the sky IPOs or dumping holdings in long standing companies at the cusp of a turnaround.I doubt anything has changed since. I always used to pitty those who had SL managing their pension, annuities or endowments and life policies.

I think you could both be right - but saying that I imagine it will take some time. At least we can collect the divi at a large nav discount while we hope for something to happen

Yes, same with SHRS which has already started.

Could the merger of Aberdeen with SL lead to a narrowing of the discount here? SL has a well regarded smaller companies team and the discount is about 10 percentage points lower on the SL UK smaller co trust than on ASCI, although they are not wholly equivalent. The advantages of the merger rest on rationalising common investment funds, so I expect to see managers moved and investment trusts merged. We'll see.

Great results from Dechra today which is number 2 holding here. Mispricing in the investment trust market must be one of the only places left to regularly exploit obvious market inefficiencies.

Discount is barely changed tho; I'd like to see it at more like 10%. Hopefully plenty more to come for us, & 3% yield while we wait.
