London Stock Exchange today welcomed Aberdeen UK Tracker Trust plc
London Stock Exchange today welcomed Aberdeen UK Tracker Trust plc (AUKT) to open the market, an investment trust that is celebrating its twenty fifth anniversary of its listing on Lonon Stock Exchange.
Launched in 1990, this is one of the longest established index-tracking vehicles in the UK. Whereas some trackers only give exposure to the FTSE 100, AUKT tracks the FTSE All-Share Index, giving shareholders exposure to more than 90% of the UK stock market by value in one simple fund.
Kevin Ingram, Chairman of AUKT said: “Our Board and managers are delighted to be invited today. Unlike some other trackers, AUKT doesn’t use derivatives to track the index but holds the physical stocks themselves – making it more transparent for investors. AUKT provides half-year dividends from the companies in which it invests, making it attractive to both income and total return investors.”
