As local elections nationwide drew to a close yesterday, our account manager, Julian Mackenzie-Smith, attended the Share Centre’s Investment Trusts evening.

The event, co-hosted by Edison Group at Edison and MR’s offices in High Holborn, was a chance to hear an excellent discussion of how investment trusts fit in a modern portfolio. With presentations that ranged from the income advantage of investment trusts, to the UK’s top dividend heroes – with an unexpected touch of Marvel superheroes in the middle, along with the obligatory mention of the EU referendum – the evening offered valuable insight into what is a little known but time-tested pillar of London’s investment landscape.
