In this latest episode of Trust TV, we speak to Ben Lofthouse, Portfolio Manager of the Henderson International Income Trust – to discuss how he is navigating the current market environment and how companies within the portfolio are dealing with supply chain disruptions and rising input costs. Ben also provides his outlook for dividends over the coming months.
