The Australian large cap focused listed investment companies benefited from the solid market performance over the quarter with the five largest listed LICs delivering an average portfolio return (pre-tax NTA plus dividends) of 4.5% for the quarter, in line with the ASX All Ordinaries Accumulation Index return. For investors seeking exposure to the Australian large cap market sector, Australian Foundation Investment Company (ASX:AFI), Milton Corporation (ASX:MLT) and Argo Investments (ASX:ARG) offer reasonable value trading slightly below pre-tax NTA at 31 March.
