The pandemic has disrupted UK dividends as companies cut their payouts to protect their businesses. This means UK equity income funds will deliver lower incomes this year, yet we believe many British companies will bounce back stronger in following years. We’ve outlined our strategy to protect your capital and build the foundation for a growing dividend here.

We aim to deliver an annual income that is in line with or better than that of the FTSE All-Share Index over any rolling three-year period. We also aim to increase the income we pay you in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measure of inflation over any rolling five-year period.

We aim to generate a greater total return than the FTSE All-Share Index, after fees, over any five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (dividend payments).

We use the FTSE All-Share Index as a target for our fund’s return and the income we pay because we want to offer you a better income and higher returns than the UK stock market. Increasing your income payments at least in line with the CPI measure of inflation protects your future spending power.

We also compare our fund against the Investment Association (IA) UK Equity Income sector because the funds in it are similar to ours.
