Lindsell Train Investment Trust is on an 85% premium: why are investors buying?

Can you explain how Lindsell Train Investment Trust (LTI) can trade at a premium of 75% above net asset value (quoted on interactive investor’s website in mid-April)? Does this effectively mean investors believe the fundamental investments this trust has already made will be worth 75% more, within a reasonable timescale? Why would, or should, anyone pay such a premium?
