Semi-Annually
Dividend policy
The aim is to achieve its total return through a focus on long term capital growth, rather than income. However, in order to qualify as an investment trust, the Company is not permitted to retain more than 15% of eligible investment income arising during any accounting period. Accordingly, the Board's policy is that any dividend paid will be by way of a final dividend and be not less than the minimum required for the Company to maintain its investment trust status. This will result in future dividends being significantly less than we are paying in respect of the financial year ended 31 January 2022.
