Henderson High Income invests in a prudently diversified selection of both well-known and smaller companies to provide investors with a high dividend income stream while also maintaining the prospect of capital growth.
In normal circumstances the company will invest up to 80% of its gross assets in equities and up to 20% of its gross assets in fixed income (in companies of any size that are either listed in, registered in, or whose principal business is in the UK). Within these limits a maximum of 30% of gross assets may be invested outside of the UK.
