Important information - The value of this fund can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invested, especially over the short term. The information shown is not personal advice, if you are at all unsure of the suitability of an investment for your circumstances please contact us for personal advice. The HL Select UK Income Shares Fund is managed by our sister company HL Fund Managers Ltd.

What is HL Select UK Income Shares?

This fund contains high-quality, dividend paying shares chosen and managed by our experts. Dividends have long been a key element of the UK market, maybe more than any other. The HL Select UK Income Shares fund aims to offer an attractive and growing level of income with long-term capital growth potential. Dividend paying funds might be attractive to you if you’re focused on getting a monthly income from your investments. Income will vary and isn’t guaranteed. The charges for the fund are taken from capital, which can boost the income on offer, but reduce the potential for capital growth.

The fund not only focuses on stocks that have high income potential, but also good growth potential. Reinvesting dividends has significantly boosted returns over the long term. We might invest in higher-risk smaller companies where we see excellent potential for a greater yield. We will typically hold a smaller number of companies than most funds. This way each investment will have greater impact when things go well. But this does work both ways, making it higher risk.

In all HL Select funds, our experts have carefully selected a small number of financially strong companies. Across at least the next five years, we think these companies will grow your investment through delivering exceptional products or services. Although, like all investments the value of the fund will go up and down, so you could get back less than you invest. With monthly emails and our HL Select blog you can see every stock in each fund, have visibility of every investment decision we make, and a clear explanation of why it’s been chosen.

Think about HL Select UK Income Shares if:

  • You want to invest in high quality companies in the UK.
  • You want a monthly income from your investment.
  • You are happy building your own diversified portfolio. More about diversification.
  • You won’t need the money for at least 5 years.
  • You’ve already built-up cash savings for emergencies.
  • You’re happy with a higher-risk approach.

The investment strategy

We aim to find large, medium or higher-risk smaller companies that, we believe, have the most potential. We hold about 30 companies, spread across 15 sectors, so each makes a real impact on returns, though it also increases risk compared to a more diversified approach. That’s why we focus so much on financial strength, as well as dividend potential.

Monthly Dividends

Income from the fund will be paid monthly. Investors can choose to have this automatically rolled back into the fund, by choosing accumulation units, or receive the dividends each month by choosing income units. We aim to provide a consistent dividend payment each month, although it is not guaranteed. Charges can be taken from capital, which increases the yield but reduces the potential for capital growth.
