Over the long term, the Company aims to achieve capital growth in excess of the FTSE World Index and dividend growth greater than inflation, as measured by the UK Consumer Prices Index (‘CPI’), by investing in companies listed throughout the world.

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Potential investors must read the latest annual report and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing. This website is for promotional purposes and does not qualify as an investment recommendation.


The Bankers Investment Trust has the flexibility to invest in any geographic region and any sector with no set limits on individual country or sector exposures. The Manager primarily employs a bottom-up stock picking investment process, across six regional portfolios, to identify suitable opportunities. While each regional portfolio manager employs their own investment style, they all pay particular regard to cash generation and dividend growth over the medium term.

The Company can, but normally does not, invest up to 15% of its gross assets in any other investment companies (including listed investment trusts).

The Company can borrow up to 20% of net assets at the time of draw down to make additional investments with the aim of achieving a return that is greater than the cost of the borrowing.

ESG Policy

The Bankers Investment Trust believes that integrating environmental, social and governance or (‘ESG’) factors into the investment decision making and ownership practices is an important element in delivering our investment objective. ESG considerations are a fully integrated component of the investment processes employed by each of the active investment teams. These teams, spanning different geographic markets, operate and are structured in ways that are suited to their respective regions. This means that ESG considerations are embedded in ways that are appropriate to the markets in which the teams invest. They apply their differentiated perspectives, insight and experience to identify sustainable business practices that can generate long-term value. Further information can be found in the Company’s ESG Policy

  • ​The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
  • ​Past performance does not predict future returns.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • Global portfolios may include some exposure to Emerging Markets, which tend to be less stable than more established markets. These markets can be affected by local political and economic conditions as well as variances in the reliability of trading systems, buying and selling practices and financial reporting standards.
  • Where the Company invests in assets that are denominated in currencies other than the base currency, the currency exchange rate movements may cause the value of investments to fall as well as rise.
  • This Company is suitable to be used as one component of several within a diversified investment portfolio. Investors should consider carefully the proportion of their portfolio invested in this Company.
  • Active management techniques that have worked well in normal market conditions could prove ineffective or negative for performance at other times.
  • The Company could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Company.
  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • The return on your investment is directly related to the prevailing market price of the Company's shares, which will trade at a varying discount (or premium) relative to the value of the underlying assets of the Company. As a result, losses (or gains) may be higher or lower than those of the Company's assets.
  • The Company may use gearing (borrowing to invest) as part of its investment strategy. If the Company utilises its ability to gear, the profits and losses incurred by the Company can be greater than those of a Company that does not use gearing.
  • Using derivatives exposes the Company to risks different from - and potentially greater than - the risks associated with investing directly in securities. It may therefore result in additional loss, which could be significantly greater than the cost of the derivative.
  • All or part of the Company's management fee is taken from its capital. While this allows more income to be paid, it may also restrict capital growth or even result in capital erosion over time.
  • The Company confirms that it currently conducts its affairs so that its ordinary shares of 2.5p each can be recommended by IFAs to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
  • The shares are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in an investment trust.
  • For detailed product information including the risks associated with investing please read the relevant Prospectus or Annual Report. Please refer to the AIFMD Disclosure document and Annual Report of the AIF before making any final investment decisions.
  • The Company underwent a 10 for 1 stock split on 1 March 2021; comparative NAV, share price and dividend figures have, where possible, been adjusted to reflect this, but historic dividends and earnings per share up to 1 March 2021 may reflect the previous position, unless otherwise stated.
