Finsbury Growth & Income Trust: Train worth boarding in tough times The Times: 21 April 2020 In volatile markets such as these, it must be tempting for investors to turn to traditional stalwarts, perceived to offer safety when the world looks shaky. Finsbury Growth & Income Trust is a good example of one of these vehicles, highly popular among individual investors because of its very strong track record in creating value. An investment trust that is a constituent of the FTSE 250, Finsbury Growth & Income Trust has flourished since 2000, when Lindsell Train — and one of its founders, Nick Train, 60 — took control of the portfolio and the investment process.

I'm here. Sell before the "herd immunity" strategy gets you. Mobile crematoria manufacturers are holding up well

This is a core holding in my portfolio and I buy every month and have been for 10 years I prefer the LT Global Equity Fund portfolio it is a shame that isn't available as an IT as Michael Lindsell is as successful as Nick T. If this was the only bright idea I had had, I would have retired long ago :) I also hold uLVR,Reed, Diageo and Sage as individual holdings.

Hi jonwig, don't know if you've seen the articles, but I think Train's theory is disruptive tech bringing about an increase in MU's value: hxxps://www.investmentweek.co.uk/investment-week/analysis/3032795/nick-train-hopes-to-increase-weighting-in-manchester-united-before-stock-trebles-in-value Indeed Amazon have already successfully bid for 20 PL matches to be streamed live on Prime: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/jun/07/amazon-breaks-premier-league-hold-of-sky-and-bt-with-streaming-deal I suppose ultimately it could lead to certain clubs negotiating their own deals directly with media platforms, which presumably could lead to big increases in the top clubs. FWIW I topped up in my SIPP today at 741p.

It may be. But "It is, and ever shall be"? That isn't a given. N T's method is buy-and-hold. I was recommended this by a broker, and bought. I still hold, and view this share price as a discount correction. But would ask him to revisit that one stock selection.

Its the best sports brand in the world. Why not?

The only thing about N T I'm doubtful about is his enthusiasm for Man Utd (as a company, not a team). Can the company deliver earnings on the back of poor on-field performance?

Support at 720p, if that holds, could be a bottom?

Stumbled across a good article from WhichInvestmentTrust.com : hTTp://whichinvestmenttrust.com/report-card-finsbury-growth-incomes-nick-train-promises-to-go-on-and-on/ Pleased to hear that Nick Train has no intention of hanging up his boots any time soon...

Interesting new webcast by NT on the Finsbury website. Sounding very positive for FGT, and some of its largest holdings such as ULVR, DGO and Heineken. Also talks of the strong dividend growth for the majority of FGT's portfolio so far this year (60% increased by 5-10%, 25% by more than 10%!). Hopefully this will translate into a growing FGT dividend too.

This investment trust is a pretty good performer. Over the last few years, Nick Train has sold Marston's and Lloyd's Bank preference shares, but only added to existing holdings. As far as I can see he has not invested in ANY new companies for the portfolio. A refreshing change for a fund manager. That's what you call a small and focused portfolio!!

Hi Bill! A quiet BB here, but that's usually the sign of a quality share. We're in good company with Nick topping up on the 10th too, but nevertheless the market keeps relentlessly dragging FGT down with it (closing at a low of around 471 tonight). Difficult to be positive with the markets in their current mood, but I've cash on the sidelines and will add more FGT to my SIPP if we fall much further, as it s a perfect long term investment in my eyes.
