HC Charteris Premium Income Fund
Morningstar 2 star & FE Single Crown Rated
This Fund invests only in leading UK Blue Chip equities and seeks to enhance returns by writing covered call options against the underlying portfolio. It is the UK’s longest established option enhanced Equity Fund and the Fund aims to yield circa 4-6% a year.
Since Charteris investment managers Ian Williams and Nick Taylor took control of the fund on 31st October 2008, the fund has achieved top quartile performance at various points during its tenure*. Many option funds continuously write options and consequently run the risk of missing out on strongly rising markets, this fund only writes them when specific technical and fundamental investment criteria are met. Colin Robertson has joined the investment team to assist with stock selection for the Fund.
The Fund is a fully authorised UK unit trust and eligible for inclusion in ISAs & SIPPs.
