I looked at Merchants a couple of years ago, but didn't invest as they had large tobacco holdings. I only recently realised that they have largely got out of tobacco, and seem to have a bias towards financials. This move seems very well timed, so have bought a holding today.

In a Shares magazine article this week on Investment Trusts - Looking for opportunities amongst large companies MRCH is highlighted as having proven pedigree in finding value and providing plump payouts.

I have been looking at this one for a while, but I already hold FHI (F&C High Income), formerly ICT (Investors Capital Trust). Comparing these two over all sorts of time periods show them as eerily identical. MRCH gives a better dividend though.

Tim, just fwiw, Shires is worth a look on a market or XD sell off. I sold most as mentioned on the recent pop, bought a small amount back yesterday, but would now only add lower. All just IMV only, as always.

Thanks shalder, I have bought in there using my SIPP so I can hold it for a long time if necessary.

Also that director has been buying repeatedly in size for some time now. imo this is a complex IT to evaluate. It has lots of expensive long term debt, which is probably what frightens some investors, but this is balanced by direct holdings in high yield commercial property in the UK, so it depends how you feel about that risk. there is also now a provision for investors to sell at nav less costs in the mid 2020s which would probably narrow the discount in future years. Their share holdings have interersted me from time to time as they do not follow the herd.

RC - Vin - a director has a controlling stake hence the discount.

Thanks EI, scotttishfield. This has a few interesting suggestions too. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/diyinvesting/article-4308796/The-dividend-hero-investment-trust-list-revealed.html Nice to see MRCH there. Off course am fully aware that yield is not the full story as it can be at expense of capital growth.

tim 3 , I'm looking at a few as you are. Have got LWI & BNKR on my list for consideration too. Let us know what you decide on, just for interest.

I'm a little biased on Shires, however think it is at least worth consideration. Some astute stock selection moves by the Manger over the past year.

Tim Look at Shires Income, Temple Bar, and Princess Private Equity All good yield. Third in this list is more risk but management appear sound. Dividends quoted in Euros.

Like the look of these am looking to buy but will wait for a pullback as feel they and the market are overextended at present. Anyone recommend any other Investment trusts looking for consistent rather than spectacular (with the risks that holds) performance and good yield. TIA.
