“A multi-decade re-engineering of the entire global economy” – Julian Bishop, co-lead portfolio manager of Brunner debates the realities of the energy transition with host Joe Lynam. He argues that the production of nearly everything in the world relies on fossil fuels to some degree, something that will inevitably take time to change. The duo also examine the tie in with global population size and growth, look at whether energy in general and renewable energy in particular contains opportunities for investors, and draw their conclusions on the ultimate realities of the energy transition.

Select Role
  • Individual and Professional investors
  • Warning to Shareholders

    We are aware that some shareholders may have received unsolicited telephone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas based organisations who target UK shareholders offering to sell them, what often turn out to be, worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments. They can be extremely persistent and persuasive. Shareholders are therefore advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice or offers.

    Please note that it is most unlikely that either the company or the company’s Registrar, Link Asset Services, would make unsolicited telephone calls to shareholders. Any such calls would only ever relate to official documentation already circulated to shareholders and never in respect of investment ‘advice’.

    If you are in any doubt about the veracity of an unsolicited telephone call, please call the Company Secretary +44 (0)800 389 4696 or the Registrar on +44 (0) 371 664 0300.

    You should always bear in mind that:

    Past performance does not predict future returns.

    The value of an investment and the income from it may fall as well as rise and investors might not get back the full amount invested. You should not make any assumptions about the future on the basis of this information.

    Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of investments and the income from them to go down or up.

    In a building society your money is secure, whereas in a stock market-based investment it is exposed to a degree of risk and the value of your investment will fluctuate up and down.

    The Brunner Investment Trust PLC is a quoted company listed on the London Stock Exchange. Its share prices are determined by factors including demand which means that the shares may trade below (at a discount) or above (at a premium to) the underlying net asset value.

    The Trust seeks to enhance returns for its shareholders through gearing, in the form of long-term, fixed rate debentures. Gearing can boost the Trust’s returns when investments perform well, though losses can be magnified when investments lose value. You should be aware that this Trust may be subject to sudden and large falls in value and you could suffer substantial capital loss.

    This investment trust charges 70% of its annual management fee to the capital account and 30% to revenue. This could lead to a higher level of income but capital growth will be constrained as a result. Your capital could also decrease if income paid out of capital exceeds the growth rate of the Trust. Derivatives are used to manage the trust efficiently.
