Some 6 years ago there was not much to choose between the two bellwether stalwarts of the UK Equity Income Investment Trust sector, Murray Income and City of London. However, since then City of London has done a better job at recovering lost ground and increasing the dividend than that of Murray Income. Since 31st Jan 2011 when Aberdeen’s CIO, Anne Richards, stepped aside to let the relatively inexperienced Charles Luke run the show, Murray Income’s performance has noticeably lagged behind that of City of London. While I don’t expect either Murray Income or City of London to ever shot lights out – they are simply not put together in such a way to do that - I do expect them to consistently hold a mid-table position. To use a metaphor, Murray Income is beginning to flirt with ‘relegation’.
