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 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.
