‘Next generation’ investment trust dividend heroes revealed

Investors searching for investment trusts that offer the prospect of consistent dividend growth – an even more attractive trait in the current uncertain environment for markets – can choose from a 25-strong list put together by the Association of Investment Companies (AIC).

The AIC's ‘Next Generation of Dividend Heroes’ list comprises trusts that have increased their dividends each year for 10 years or more, with an upper limit of 20 years. The trade body has also recently refreshed its list of investment trusts with records of dividend increases that span 20 years and more.
