Polar Capital Global Financials has a fixed life that expires in May 2020. However it has announced that it intends to seek investors’ approval to extend its life for at least a further five years. It seeks to generate a growing dividend income together with capital appreciation for investors. Polar Capital Global Financials will seek to achieve its objective by investing primarily in a global portfolio consisting of listed or quoted securities issued by companies in the financials sector operating in the banking, insurance, property and other sub-sectors.
We have written some notes that explain, in some detail, how the trust works and how the managers go about achieving the objective –
- “Banks too cheap too ignore“, published in October 2019, pointed out that banks were trading at multi-year valuation lows relative to other sectors
- “Don’t fear a slowing economy”, published in April 2019, looks at how banks have lagged in markets making it crucial for PCFT to be designed to offer an attractive and growing yield
