Evenlode Income Fund
The Evenlode Income Fund aims to deliver for clients, over rolling periods of five years, a combination of a healthy, growing dividend stream and attractive annualised capital returns. The Evenlode investment team aim to achieve this by investing in the shares of companies with market-leading positions, cash generative economics and attractive long-term growth potential. The fund will always be at least 80% invested in the shares of high-quality UK-based companies, but with revenues generated from a well-diversified range of geographies.
The Evenlode Income Fund has now soft closed. This decision was taken in order to protect existing investors in the Evenlode Income Fund and involves introducing an initial charge of 5% for new investors. There will be no subscription charges for existing investors.
Effective 2 October 2023, the ACD of this fund, T. Bailey Fund Services Limited, changed name to Waystone Fund Services (UK) Limited. As a result, the name of the fund is now WS Evenlode Income instead of TB Evenlode Income. Documents dated prior to 2 October 2023 will still use the TB prefix and documents dated after 2 October 2023 will use the WS prefix.
