Mozy123, Not sure that Shopify (their largest holding), is in the S&P 500, would have to check. From their factsheets they bought into Shopify later in 2017 so the share price would have been around $100 then, but it's now $1096! So this could be having a major impact in your comparison of out performance over last 4 years. Also, although the S&P 500 which could itself have doubled in value the last 5 years, this is still no where near the growth seen for Nvidia (key holding), which they bought in 2016 when the share price must have been around $100, and this now sits around $566. They bought Amazon in 2017 possibly around $1000 and this is now $3270. So these key top ten investments have way outperformed the S&P 500 index over the last 4 years or so. I have assuming they have gone on to hold these investments all way through up to current day, which I have not checked. QuePassa, Liking these new investments also, they have also bought Ballard Power recently which looks great to me. TT

Interesting to see CGI putting some cash into exciting new investments like Xebec Adsoption, Goeasy, Wesport Fuel Systems which have high growth potential.

From https://www.trustnet.com/news/13258981/which-investment-trusts-are-trading-on-the-widest-discounts-in-2021 In second [among ITs at a large discount] is the $760.4m Canadian General Investments trust, which was trading on a 32.3 per cent discount to NAV as of 7 May. Its discount has hovered around a 30 per cent average for the past five years, according to Shore Capital. The trust – which is domiciled in Canada, has outperformed the IT North America sector over the past one, three and five years. Over the past 12 months, its 79.07 per cent total return is significantly ahead of the 49.38 per cent made by its average peer. Analysts at Shore Capital explained why the discount remains high: “One of the key discount management tools used by most funds, a buy-back or tender offer, is not a possibility for Canadian General Investments given the fund’s investment corp status, which eliminates a layer of taxation, with capital gains only being taxed at the shareholder level. “We believe that a steady/growing dividend should boost the attractiveness of the shares and could lead to some contraction in the discount.”

Tony, I compare this to ISHARES PLC CORE S&P 500 (USD) UCITS ETF (DIST) (IDUS) as I do with all my decisions on funds/trusts. Over 1,3 and 5 years cgi is ahead, over 10 years if behind buy a huge amount. Did the strategy change or the managers? do you know?

Simon Thompson indicated insiders hold 52.5% and the board are unable to repurchase shares to narrow the discount to NAV. Apparently would contravene it's Canadian investment corporation tax status. Cracking long term performer though. NAV per share reported to have increased 260 fold since 1969.

Thanks AL101. 15% seems to make sense compared to what I have received to my account.

25%, but the UK has a treaty that reduces that to 15% for UK based investors. Guessing there's some form filling to be done for those that hold the Toronto listed shares.

is cgi dividend liable to withholding tax? If so what is the tax rate in an ISA account? Thanks in advance for any answers.

Dividend has appeared as 'pending' in my ii account, settlement date today. It might have been there a couple of days for all I know - it's not immediately obvious, have to go cash, switch currency to USD, and there it is. (I'm new to ii, so still finding my way).

I have a dividend due 15/3 here, but haven't seen it hit my account. That's unusual, I normally get them same day with interactive investor. Anyone else got/not got divi?

It will matter if the exchange rate goes against you when you wish to sell. Bought more today. Ha Ha...someone just voted my logic down!

Trading in US$ or canadian is no problem with Interactive Brokers, and cheap. So does not matter to me.
