Long Term Winners
Long-term winners So which of today's businesses look set to stand the test of time? One obvious avenue to consider is Britain's rich seam of investment trusts. Several are themselves well over a hundred years old: Alliance Trust (LSE: ATST) and Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust (LSE: FRCL), for instance, date back to 1888 and 1868 respectively. Monks (LSE: MNKS) dates back to 1929. Scottish Mortgage (LSE: SMT) has been riding out uncertain economic conditions since 1909.

Me too - I told the caller to tell the Board to stop wasting shareholders' money sending out more AGM forms to fill in and then phoning them to ask about where they intend to vote - sort yourselves out Alliance Board or you will be ousted as the returns to shareholders over past 5 years have been very average and you are paying yourselves far too much money, as usual!!
