Edin much better value. And it doesn’t have Coppell as chairman!

With the portfolio being 6% gold and 20% gilts/cash you would expect to see a more resilient performance in the down days.

Kingfisher at risk of falling into the S&P 'fallen angel' category won't help, with about 3% of portfolio there. The bigger issue isn't the day to day volatility, it is the long term plan in place. Is there one?

Plus portfolio management in complete disarray, so future investment policy and stock selection a total unknown (despite co comments) can't see any narrowing of the discount any time soon. Better value elsewhere in the UK income sector imo.

Oil , DIY stores and Gilts. Top 10 is a bit of a shocker really. I'm sure things will turn around in time, but it is either a big loss or a long term hold with reduced rewards. The portfolio dividends are 40% down, so that will more than likely be reflected in the future dividend payments.

Below £7 and likely to be cutting dividends in the future. Anyone else regretting investing here?

Was in and out of this fairly quickly for a quick profit, interesting to read thoughts of some of you who have been in it long term. I wonder whether the U.K. is pretty uninvestable, there is only so much an economy can take, years of austerity choking growth, the brexit fiasco, endless elections, now covid and the hopeless U.K. response (contrast with Merkel/Germany) Iv got to the stage of why bother, buying s and p, Nasdaq, loaded on Facebook and visa, its all back where it was or better...without drama or risk of wipeout....I just think why keep flogging the kind of pro british Woodford style horse to death, it just looks terminal, companies with declining business models, very little tech, the ftse 350 has so much dross, LSE will list any old junk and aim even worse. Maybe just short it rather than invest in U.K.

I bought these yesterday for the 1st time then checked the top ten investments last night. I don't know why but they had a nightmare yesterday, down on average 3%, when the FTSE was flat! Sold this morning as I think there are better ITs than this one and at bigger discounts.

They're certainly going to have to dig into reserves to continue paying the divi, but a year out and this won't be looking so bad. His obsession with builders merchants was well founded, IMO, but then he went over the top with Capita, and he did have some pretty big bets. Shame the bug came along.

I'm all about the value approach, it can work and now is the time to be doing it. But I worry about this investment.

Mundy sold GSK who maintained their divi and kept RDSB. This guy should never work again in the industry.

Maybe the bigger question is how much longer the big ITs can remain invested predominantly in Britain, where too many companies fit that Fundsmith description. For sure, there are good businesses here - AZN, DGE, ULVR, RB - but successive governments have allowed too many quality firms to be sold off and the pool has shrunk.

True he tripped up with the large CPI holding, this destroyed the portfolio before the pandemic really started, then was too slow to react. Ultimately the board are incompetent and have panicked- so all need sacking. For me, 'Quality' is the way to go, Value has failed. Fundsmith comments are so true: “Shares in companies that are lowly rated are so mostly for good reasons – because their businesses are heavily cyclical, highly leveraged, they have poor returns on capital and/or they face other structural or management issues."

Same happened to European Investment Trust which I also held. Abandoning "value" during a market crash is idiotic. It just shows that the so called directors haven't got a clue what they are doing. What they have done is basically vandalism. There is no comparison to be made between Mundy and Woodford. I sold Woodford when I realised he was investing in cold fusion - totally out of his depth. Mundy tripped up once while Woodford was totally "off beam".

All the big value names are being sacked at the moment. First Neil Woodford (albeit he had a massive speculative style drift taking him well away from value), then his successor at Invesco and now Mundy. Unfortunately, the value style just hasn't been working for over a decade now. However, at this point of value capitulation, maybe this is where value starts to out-perform. I'm a value investor at heart, but I couldn't invest in many of the things Mundy puts in his portfolio which is why I invested in the investment trust. I guess that with a 12m notice period, they are giving Mundy and Ninety-One a chance to be vindicated. Anyway this is a nice trust which has stuck rigidly to its principles and I do hope it recovers. Mundy deserves better than this in my view.

Oh dear, mundy is off sick, hope he gets better, but probably better to have 2 others at the wheel

@aurelius5 I agree with you, but the vocabulary has changed: Short term: Two tweets away. Medium term: One Instagram update away. Long term: Next week. :)

Munday is taking a lot of stick from armchair commentators who are understandably disappointed with the short term problems here. Nevertheless in the 20 years to the top of the market two months ago, this trust trebled your capital and increased the dividend above the rate of inflation. It's a good long term performance. I agree with Munday's longer term view of rising inflation. It's quite possible that there will be further falls across the market but long term investors could do worse than start to accumulate.

The manager actually made a good bet on a recovering economy. All the economic indicators in February supported his bet. Problem is he did not foresee the impact of the virus until too late. The Trust has sold quality stocks in favour of value. The new bet is that value offers a greater return than quality. Over 3 to 5 years I expect they will be proved right.
