Got my full allocation of this one as keen on keeping a fair bit of cash in these unusual times. But fully agree this trust should be a core holding in ones portfolio. You could even argue it should be number 1 if that exists. Let time do its thing......!

Unusually, this trust is now trading at a discount. Given the tremendous long term record, I see this as a buying opportunity. So I have been adding here as funds become available.
biggest bill
Yes, not much in it for income seekers but if you look at these as quasi-warrants (i.e. you pay 9p to get the right to buy the u/l at 978), I think the CULS seem to offer good value; they need “only” 2% growth in u/l (FCS) to break even; anything over, they could rise rapidly.
CULS now look overpriced, with yield down to about 3.2% & fall in share price against conversion price of 977.7p.
Anyone investing in their Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock offering? It looks a good investment to me with limited/virtually no downside. Quite like this trust and it also comes with a 44 year dividend record, albeit only a 1% yield. Peter Ewins is a good manager focusing on growth companies in the UK, US and Europe in that order, with wider asian exposure through successful emerging market trusts.
No thread for this successful investment trust so I thought I would start one!
