The fund offers investors access to a diversified multi-cap, multi-factor portfolio of attractive stocks and aims to generate a healthy dividend yield

Why UK Equity Income?

Investors can have access to, what we believe to be the most attractive equity income opportunities in one of the best value stock markets in the developed markets. The fund’s diversification means that it has low correlation to – and therefore blends well with – other income  funds. The investment team works within the proven framework of the Potential, Valuation, Timing (PVT) process.

Investment philosophy and process

The portfolio manager invests according to River and Mercantile's long established PVT philosophy, where stocks are evaluated by a combination of their potential to create value, their valuation and the timing of buying into a position.

Sophisticated quantitative analysis and intelligent screening finds only the best opportunities for the manager and investment team to debate and validate by applying rigorous fundamental research.
