SLI Global Equity Income loses Elite Rating

Aberdeen Standard Investments has today announced that, after 24 years in the industry, Kevin Troup will be retiring.

Kevin joined Standard Life Investments in 2010 and has run the Global Equity Income fund since January 2012, when its investment objective changed significantly. As a result of his impending retirement, the Elite Rating has been removed from the fund.

Aberdeen and Standard Life Investments merged on 14 August 2017. Kevin’s retirement was announced along with a number of other investment team changes as the newly merged company continues to settle.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. 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. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
