Hi Goldpig,Appreciate the mention about the HFEL board. The notorious SS being one such poster. I agree, if you are looking at a trust then 5 year min for me. 5-10 years particularly one offering a decent yield. HFEL is probably too much currently and they need ti action something however I am buying at current prices as I see it as buy and hold for compounding over the next 10 years and more.As for LWI I like it and it is yielding above 5% - not beating current best fixed deals but I think there is capital growth to be had here. I only started investing here last September when it was a little lower than now, so I am going to regularly top up.

Appreciate the reply, thanks.

Only point I would make is wider macro is weakening, so you might be a bit soon with LWI - timing as always a challenge.

Hi Essential,

I have only been building my LWI investment since April 2022, so I don't have a 5 year return record here. I tend to build up a position gradually and then add on dips. I paid just over £1 for a large block of LWI shares.

I do have figures (in my press cuttings) from earlier this year showing total returns for a wide range of IT's. ABRDN Equity Income was the worst on the list with a 52% 5 year total return, followed by Lowland with 60%. The best trust shown was MRCH with a 122% 5 year total return.

However, the past is no guide to future performance and I started buying LWI last year with a 5-10 year time horizon. Many IT's with FTSE 250 holdings trade at steep discounts to NAV, providing a long term buying opportunity.

Fairly recently I also started a SIPP and have been buying VMID ETF's - (FTSE250). The FTSE 250 has performed poorly in recent years, but over a much longer time horizon has generated greater returns than the FTSE100. In the years ahead as we exit post-Brexit worries, covid 19 panic, and the huge discount the London market trades at compared to other markets I expect a period of outperformance. That is the point when Lowland should come into its own and outperform IT's that concentrate on FTSE 100 companies. I can't give a date for if/when that may happen, but my investment in LWI is a forward-looking decision based on past events.

Have I missed a fact sheet or report? It's a good price to buy, providing a good yield too.

Thank you! Mine is yet to with II. Rather odd. I have some similar themes in my portfolio: I have tried to build a good dividend payer in each market, and some exposure to smaller companies.Asia: HFEL, MMIT, FCSS, BGSUK: MRCH, CTY, LWI, THRGEurope: EATUS (kind of): MNLJCH: I have a very small holding in, and think at the prices this year, it has been on the cheap list. Big companies, discount and paying about 5% is good enough for me. I know it had quite the drop, but that was due to JPM selling a huge amount (or so I remember reading), the assets are solid.

Hi InvestingDad,

Yes, the dividend was credited into my ISA this afternoon.

I have been adding to my LWI holding (on weakness) and now have 30,000 Lowland shares in my ISA.

Being a multi-cap trust has held LWI back and made it quite volatile, but it fits really well into my IT portfolio, as some of my other holdings mainly investing in the UK (eg. MRCH) tend to focus on larger companies. If/when there is more confidence I expect LWI will start to outperform.

My current ISA Investment Trust portfolio now consists of:

Global: MYI
UK (mostly): DIG, EDIN, JCH(new holding this tax year), LWI, MRCH.

Hi drectly,

Thanks for highlighting the Questor article. The number of trades today is well above normal daily average and I agree the article has probably pushed up the price.

I have been adding to my LWI holding since January as I like the long-term future prospects here. Very good discount to NAV, very good yield, and still under many investors radar. I will be adding further on price setbacks.

Hi, and Happy New Year.

Over the last few years my ISA has evolved from gambling on speculative ‘penny’ shares, to focusing on building a strong and growing income stream, first through FTSE 100 companies, and during the pandemic moving the portfolio 100% into Investment Trusts.

IT’s are the ideal investment for ISA’s and my intention is to construct a portfolio of about twelve Investment Trusts in total, and then add to those positions. (Buy, Build and Hold Indefinitely.) I was pleased to recently read that a high proportion of ISA millionaires have Investment Trusts in their portfolios. After 7 years since my first IT purchase, I can see why!

My current portfolio comprises:
10,000 AAIF (Abdrn Asian Income)
20,000 DIG (Dunedin Inc. Growth)
15,000 EDIN (Edinburgh Investment Trust)
5,000 HFEL (Henderson Far East)
25,000 LWI (Lowland Investment Company)
10,000 MRCH (Merchants Trust)
3,000 MYI (Murray International Trust)
Cash < 1%

In the 22-23 tax year my main addition has been Lowland Investment Company, where I now hold 25,000 shares. The valuation is currently £29,937, slightly below book cost of £30,859. The high dividend payout at LWI is now covered, so in the next year or so it should be able to rebuild the dividend reserves it dipped into as a result of the pandemic.

Ironically, the investment I am most troubled by is HFEL. It was my first IT purchase and sits at a £721 paper loss. The dividend looks too high, so I will not be adding further. For the moment I will continue to hold, but it may turn out to be the exception to the rule and I might eventually replace it.

Below is my ISA valuation on Dec 31st with dividend income for the calendar year. Due to the timing of xd purchases, even without further additions income should be over £14,000 in 2023.

(£) ISA valuation: (£) Income
2015: 113,980......... 4,450
2016: 156,795..........7,293
2017: 186,636..........9,619
2018: 193,414.........10,124
2019: 242,159 ........12,557
2020: 221,475.........10,560
2021: 285,587.........12,002
2022: 315,241.........13,377

I am now witnessing the magic of compounding and although the last few years have been a bumpy ride, 2023 should see a strong uplift in dividend income.

I have started my search for my 2023 ISA investment, with more candidates than usual. I will decide at the start of April, but several areas look to offer real value. Inflation, interest rate outlook, the conflict in Ukraine and the reopening of China will all be deciding factors.

Wishing all on the IT boards at ADVFN a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Glad to see the Edison research note on LWI published this morning, confirming my own views on this company. I purchased an opening position in LWI a couple of days ago, from my list of 3 Investment Trusts I shortlisted for possible inclusion in my 22-23 ISA IT portfolio.

NAV of 945p with the buy price at 905p. It's no bargain.
