Sid Chand Lall makes the case for UK equity income on FundCalibre

Marlborough Multi Cap Income Manager Sid Chand Lall has highlighted the case for UK equity income in an article published by fund ratings agency FundCalibre.


He said recent research by broker Panmure Gordon showed valuations of UK companies are on an average discount of 18% to comparable businesses in other developed markets.

Sid believes UK companies look highly attractive at current valuations and he does not believe this discount will last forever.

Capital is at risk. The value and income from investments can go down as well as up and are not guaranteed. An investor may get back significantly less than they invest. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of current or future performance and should not be the sole factor considered when selecting funds.
