You should always bear in mind that:
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns.
The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up. You may not get back all of your original investment. You should not make any assumptions about the future on the basis of this information.
Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of investments and the income from them to go down or up.
In a building society your money is secure, whereas in a stock market-based investment it is exposed to a degree of risk and the value of your investment will fluctuate up and down.
The Brunner Investment Trust PLC is a quoted company listed on the London Stock Exchange. Its share prices are determined by factors including demand which means that the shares may trade below (at a discount) or above (at a premium to) the underlying net asset value.
The Trust seeks to enhance returns for its shareholders through gearing, in the form of long-term, fixed rate debentures. Gearing can boost the Trust’s returns when investments perform well, though losses can be magnified when investments lose value. You should be aware that this Trust may be subject to sudden and large falls in value and you could suffer substantial capital loss.
This investment trust charges 70% of its annual management fee to the capital account and 30% to revenue. This could lead to a higher level of income but capital growth will be constrained as a result. Your capital could also decrease if income paid out of capital exceeds the growth rate of the trust.
