BlackRock World Mining Trust plc

BlackRock World Mining Trust is a British investment trust dedicated to investments in a diversified portfolio of mining and metal assets worldwide.

The mining sector is benefiting from the world’s most compelling long-term trends from digital transformation, to the sustainability agenda, to gold and precious metals. Targeting income and capital growth, the Trust provides a diversified blend of companies designed to benefit from the changing global economy.

About this investment trust

The Company aims to provide a diversified investment in mining and metal  assets worldwide, actively managed with the objective of maximising  total returns. While the policy is to invest principally in quoted  securities, the Company’s investment policy includes investing in  royalties derived from the production of metals and minerals as well as  physical metals. Up to 10% of gross assets may be held in physical  metals and up to 20% may be invested in unquoted investments.

Why choose it?

BlackRock’s experienced natural resources team looks across the globe to build a diversified portfolio of mining stocks, exposed to a range of compelling long-term themes – decarbonisation, digitalisation or the development of renewable energy sources. This is balanced with investment in more traditional areas such as gold and precious metals, designed to provide long-term capital growth and a diversifying income stream.

Suited to…

Investors looking for a specialist mining Trust to provide long-term diversification of income and capital, geared to the changing dynamics of the global economy. These companies can be volatile, so some tolerance for market uncertainty is important.

Your Capital is at Risk

Seymour Sinclair Investments Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and offers an execution-only service. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed.

If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst Seymour Sinclair provide product information, guidance and fund research we cannot recommend which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before investing you must read the Seymour Sinclair and Platforms Terms and Conditions and it is important that you read the specific risk factors on the Key Investor Information Documents for the funds which you are considering investing in.
