Investing in the UK with a “think active, act lazy” approach

Elite Rated Threadneedle UK Equity Income invests in unloved UK companies that pay a dividend. In this interview manager Richard Colwell takes us through his views on UK dividends and how his “think active, act lazy” approach results is holding companies for 5 plus years.

Please note that this video interview was recorded prior to the start of the global healthcare crisis and subsequent stock market falls in late February/March 2020.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
