Lima model portfolio - growing income, higher risk

Who is it for: 
  • Adventurous investors looking for a growing income from their capital over the long term, plus capital growth.
  • However, investors must be able to afford for their income to fall and to lose some of their capital under a worst case scenario.
  • May be suitable for newly retired investors with other secure sources of income who are prepared to take additional risks for the prospect of a rising income and capital gains over the long term.
  • May also appeal to younger investors who can opt to reinvest their dividends as part of a long-term growth strategy.

Why were these funds selected: 

This portfolio invests purely in equity funds in order to provide the best prospects for income growth and capital gains over the long term. It includes four UK focused funds. The core holding is JPMorgan European Trust (income shares). It focuses on large companies but also targets growing, medium-sized companies in the region and has returned over 40 per cent in the past year. Two further UK equity holdings in the portfolio are Lowland and PFS Chelverton UK Equity Income which provide more exposure to medium and smaller sized companies and should give the portfolio greater income and capital growth potential.

Diversified international exposure comes from the portfolio’s holdings in Artemis Global Income and Scottish Mortgage. They are invested in different ways. The Artemis fund is a classic global equity income fund while Scottish Mortgage is more growth oriented and can be used as a source of capital withdrawals to supplement income. Utilico Emerging Markets gives the portfolio exposure to emerging markets. This trust invests for total return but has a yield of over 3 per cent and pays a quarterly income. Finally, the portfolio includes Schroder Oriental Income which provides exposure to the Asia Pacific region and has good potential to provide an increasing income and capital gains over the long term from this faster growing economic area.
