TB Wise Investment was launched in 2004, and has been managed by Tony Yarrow since launch. The fund sits in the Wise OEIC, alongside TB Wise Income and Evenlode Income. In the difficult conditions of its first twelve years, which have included the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-09, the near break-up of the Euro in 2011-2, and the collapse of commodity prices in 2014-6, the fund has produced a return for its investors of 7.0% per annum compound, net of tax and all charges.
Wise Investment is a fund of funds. Most funds of funds invest in open-ended funds (unit trusts and OEICs). A much smaller number invest in closed-ended funds, otherwise known as investment trusts. Wise Investment does both, choosing funds on the basis of the quality of the managers, and on the value of the assets.
