MERIAN
GLOBAL EQUITY INCOME FUND (IRL)

Delivering income and diversification in changing market conditions.

At times of stock market volatility and fluctuating sentiment, investors often turn to the greater stability of dividends. Over time, dividend payments can be much less volatile than companies’ share prices. However, a danger in dividend investing may be over-exposure to traditional income sectors during all market environments. Our global equities team prefers a balanced approach that seeks to extract income from across the broader market, while remaining flexible in order to adapt to changing environments.

REASONS TO RECOMMEND
Award-winning investment approach

The fund’s investment process is based on the multiple award-winning strategies managed by Ian Heslop and team.

Monthly income distribution

Income from non-traditional sources

By adopting an unconstrained, total return approach the team seeks out what it believes are the most compelling investment opportunities.

Excellent fund diversifier

With its focus on differentiated sources of alpha, rather than a concentrated style of investing, the fund can either serve as the basis for a wider global equity allocation, or as a satellite fund.
