About this fund

The Artemis Income Fund's aim is simple – to grow income and capital over five years. The fund mainly invests in companies listed in the UK, but it has the flexibility to invest overseas when attractive opportunities arise.

The managers look for stable, well-established businesses with the financial strength to pay a share of their after-tax earnings to shareholders as dividends. It should be remembered, however, that the value of the fund’s holdings and the income from them may fall as well as rise with movements in stockmarkets, currencies and interest rates.

  • Regular income: the managers look for companies with the ability to generate strong profits that allow them to pay dividends.
  • Experienced team: managers Adrian Frost, Nick Shenton and Andy Marsh have many years’ experience of managing income funds.
  • Diversified: the managers invest in a portfolio of typically around 45 to 65 stocks. They seek to avoid too much exposure to any one industry or company. The size of each holding reflects the managers’ level of expected return from a company share and their confidence in the company.
  • An eye on liquidity: the managers monitor the ability to buy and sell company shares held within the fund with the aim of mitigating liquidity risk. Liquidity risk occurs when an investment cannot be traded quickly enough without impacting the price.
  • ESG integration: the fund’s approach to environmental, social and governance factors is founded on a belief that good or improving environmental and social credentials can lead to improved financial outcomes (ie more sustainable long-term cashflows), a lower cost of capital and better long-term share-price performance.
