In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panelists from LV= Asset Management, Rathbone Unit Trust Management and Standard & Poor's discussed UK equity income.
With over 50% of UK equity income generated from only 10 stocks, funds in this sector tend to look very similar in their holdings. So how do managers in this space differentiate themselves amongst their peers? Are the risks of investing in mid and small cap stocks really too great and did the BP crisis of last year signal a move away from mega cap stocks? Our panel will discuss their approach to generating income in a concentrated market.
The UK Equity Income panel includes:
Carl Stick - Manager of the Rathbone Income Fund, Rathbone Unit Trust Management
Chris Price - Fund Manager, UK Equities LV= Asset Management
Daniel Vaughan - Associate Director, Fund Research, Standard & Poor's
