Edison issues review on Henderson International Income Trust (HINT)
Henderson International Income Trust (HINT) seeks to provide investors with more diversified sources of income, by investing exclusively outside the UK. Managed by Ben Lofthouse, the trust received a significant boost to its assets in 2016 when it was selected as a rollover vehicle for Henderson Global Trust (HGL). Demand has remained strong, and HINT has recently raised a further £21.5m through a 'C' share issue, with the new shares listed on 8 May. The manager focuses on well-managed companies with strong competitive positions and sustainable dividends in order to secure income and long-term capital growth. Absolute performance has been favourable, with annualised NAV and share price total returns of 10%+ since launch in 2011.
At 8 May, HINT's shares traded at a 0.9% premium to cum-income net asset value. This compares favourably with average discounts for the past one and three years of 0.8% and 1.3% respectively, and a 0.2% average premium over five years. HINT has tended to trade close to NAV, with continued demand leading to the issue on 8 May of 21.5m 'C' shares. The 3.1% dividend yield remains competitive with peers.
