Investment objective:

Ecofin Global Utilities and Infrastructure Trust plc’s investment objectives are to achieve a high, secure dividend yield on its investment portfolio and to realise long-term growth in the capital value of its portfolio for the benefit of shareholders, while taking care to preserve shareholders’ capital.

The Company may make use of gearing to enable it to earn a high level of dividend income and to offer shareholders a geared return on their investment.  The Directors of the Company believe that the use of gearing is justified given the nature of most of the companies in which the Company invests; that is, companies which provide essential services, operate in regulated markets and within stable regulatory frameworks, and pay dividends. The Company utilises a flexible gearing policy with the ability to borrow amounts up to 25% of net assets.

Sectors set for profitable growth

There is a requirement for substantially greater investment in economic infrastructure globally in order to support economic growth and to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Corporate strategies are changing rapidly in the Company’s sectors to meet the urgent demands for more and cleaner electricity and for the mitigation of environmental risks. Capital spending requirements related to the modernisation of inadequate infrastructure and to the transition to low and zero carbon energies should support profitable growth for the Company’s investment universe and portfolio.

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. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. 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.

For non-platform business, where we can still give discounts, those discounts are subject to receipt of commission and may be subject to change if commission levels are altered. The information on this site is intended solely for the use of those people who are United Kingdom residents for tax and investment purposes.
