Securities Trust of Scotland aims to achieve rising income and long-term capital growth through investment in a balanced portfolio constructed from global equities.
The manager typically runs a focused 35-55 stock equity portfolio that is unconstrained by geography, sector, stock or market capitalisation. This provides the opportunity to invest in their best ideas, not just because they are listed in a market index.
We pay quarterly dividends to provide investors with a regular income.

The company is overseen by an independent board of directors. By engaging with and listening to shareholders, the board ensures that the company continues to offer a distinctive investment proposition that is relevant to investors’ needs.
