Edison issues review on Securities Trust of Scotland (STS)

Securities Trust of Scotland (STS) aims to generate income and long-term capital growth through a bottom-up approach to investing in global equities. The manager, Mark Whitehead, focuses on quality companies with an ability to sustain dividend growth, to build a relatively concentrated portfolio of 35-55 high-conviction stocks. In his view, this approach is naturally aligned with selecting companies that score highly on ESG issues. Since Whitehead's appointment, and the adoption of the mandate, STS has delivered an annualised NAV total return of 12.9% and increased demand for its shares the valuation from trading at a persistent discount to trading at a premium to NAV.

STS is currently trading at a 2.3% premium to cum-income NAV, which is a significantly improved valuation from the three-year average discount of 4.1%. This partly reflects the trust's successful track record since the change of manager and mandate in June 2016, and the board's proactive approach to significantly increasing the promotion of the fund over the past 18 months. The board and the investment manager remain committed to these initiatives.
