Feb 28th 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Martin Currie Global Portfolio Trust (MNP.L, LSE:MNP, LON:MNP) entitled "Global Portfolio With Modest Income". In summary, the report says:
Prior to 1 June 2011 Martin Currie Global Portfolio Trust’s (MNP) investment in international (ex-UK) equities was restricted to 50% of the portfolio. This restriction was lifted, allowing investment in a broader set of opportunities, and the weighting to UK stocks is now 21%. Over the last 12 months MNP has outperformed the blended index by 3.3% and 8.7% in terms of NAV and price total return respectively. MNP is predominantly held by retail investors and pays an above-average yield for the global growth sector.
