robow: Quiet thread this! from yesterdays Daily Telegraph Questor: looking for one trust that you’ll never have to sell? This is the on Questor investment trust bargain: very wealthy savers can’t afford to switch funds – they would face a huge tax bill. Which one should they buy if they want to hold it forever? It is, Questor supposes, a nice problem to have: if you have so much money to invest that it cannot be protected from tax in an Isa or pension, and you would therefore face capital gains tax if you had to switch from one fund to another, which “hold for life” fund should you choose? The question was aired recently by someone whose wealth would certainly exceed the Isa and pensions limits – Peter Hargreaves, the billionaire co-founder of Hargreaves Lansdown, Britain’s biggest broker. Hargreaves went so far as to found an asset management firm and recruit a team of fund managers so that he had access to a portfolio to which he could entrust his money for the long term. That firm is Blue Whale and its lead manager, Stephen Yiu, has provided two successful tips for Questor’s Follow the Money column. But here we focus on investment trusts, so we must ask the question: which quoted portfolio should you buy if, for tax reasons or any other, you won’t want to sell it for years or even decades? We asked John Husselbee, who runs multi-asset portfolios for Liontrust, for advice. His pick as the best “never sell” trust was Monks, which has been tipped by Questor in the past. “If this is your remit the first thing you need is patience – you need to respect the fact that there is no such thing as consistency of performance but there is consistency of process and investment style,” he said. “If you want to buy and hold for a decade or more, it doesn’t make a big difference when you buy. “The second thing you want is diversification. Over such a long period it’s best to be in shares, which means that a globally diversified portfolio of stocks is the answer.” He said there were “plenty to choose from” – options included Witan and Bankers, both also tipped here in the past – but his pick was Monks. “The rationale starts with the management company, which in this case is Baillie Gifford,” he said. “It is committed to the investment trust structure, as one of the biggest managers of trusts, and its own corporate status as a partnership suggests that it will be around for a long time and not get involved in the mega-mergers seen elsewhere in fund management, which do not always lead to better results for investors.” He said he preferred managers who had been through a couple of market cycles. However, choosing a very experienced investor does mean that a long-term holder is likely to have to deal with the manager’s retirement at some stage – something that was on Peter Hargreaves’ mind when he picked 40-year-old Stephen Yiu. Monks’ lead manager, Charles Plowden, is 57 and has been in the fund management industry for 35 years. But Husselbee said the retirement of a manager would be less of a problem when a fund was run on a consistent basis according to a specified process, as he said Monks was. “I’m happy with the strength in depth and established process within a house such as Baillie Gifford. There are checks and balances in place,” he said. “In these circumstances the fund manager becomes more the steward of the process and less the star on whom everything depends.” He said the firm had long experience of investing in growth stocks, which is very much Monks’ style: its largest holding is Amazon and the top 10 also includes Alphabet (Google’s parent company) and Alibaba. There are 59 holdings in all. “You are also getting this portfolio for a very reasonable cost of 0.52pc a year,” Husselbee said. Questor says: buy Ticker: MNKS Share price at close: 833p
