HL cannot guarantee that the data is accurate or complete, and accepts no responsibility for how it may be used. Objective, holding data, trust manager and bio information, dividend policy, asset split and fee structure are provided by Morningstar.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
