To provide shareholders with a growing total annual dividend, as well as capital appreciation.
ABOUT THIS TRUST
In 2011, Henderson International Income Trust was launched to provide an investment solution for investors seeking attractive income and capital growth opportunities in a low interest rate environment.
The Company invests in the best global income ideas generated by the Janus Henderson Global Equity Income team. Global diversification helps mitigate political and economic risks and provides exposure to additional opportunities. The portfolio is split into three regions, North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, with none representing more than 50% of assets and no individual stock over 5% of the portfolio at the time of investment.
As well as the ability to borrow up to 25% of net assets to enhance returns, the mandate includes the ability to own up to 25% in fixed interest assets to enhance income generation and diversification.
DIVERSIFIER FOR UK INCOME-DRIVEN INVESTORS
The ex-UK aspect of the portfolio allows investors to be confident of true stock specific diversification as many global income funds are often overweight the UK FTSE dividend payers. The dividends paid by UK companies (represented below by the FTSE 100) are highly reliant on a small number of companies. The same is not the case for a global index or for the HINT portfolio
