The Equity Income Trust for Charities aims to provide a portfolio yield in excess of the FTSE All Share Index, targeting a premium of 30 per cent., through investing predominately in UK equities. The income provision will be the primary objective. The Trust's secondary target is to provide capital growth in order that its total return exceeds that of the FTSE All Share Index over rolling five-year periods. Subject to cash reasonably held for redemptions and expenses, it is the intention of the Fund to remain fully invested except where market conditions necessitate the use of a defensive investment strategy involves the holding of cash or near cash.
