Benefits of investing in the Perennial Value Smaller Companies Trust
The significant benefits of investing in the Trust include:
Access to investment opportunities
Investing in the Trust means that your money is pooled with that of other investors. This provides the Trust with the investment buying power not often available to you as an individual investor with smaller amounts to invest. This means you can gain access to investment markets and risk management techniques that would not normally be accessible to individual retail investors.
Perennial Value's investment professionals manage the Trust using a disciplined investment approach aimed at delivering returns in excess of the relevant benchmark.
Right to income distributions (if any)
Investing in the Trust means you may receive regular income from your investments in the Trust in the form of income distributions. However, there may be times when income distributions cannot be made, are lower than expected or are delayed.
