Managing LIC discounts and premiums
Over last 12 months listed
investment company (and trust) discounts have widened and, where they existed,
premiums have narrowed or turned into discounts. This waxing and waning of
premiums and discounts has been part and parcel of LIC investing for many

for investors looking to exit discounted LICs or gain access to quality LICs trading at premiums. In its latest
LMI Monthly Update, Independent Investment Research takes a look at how LICs
might look to manage discounts and premiums and discusses some options used
overseas. We also offer some comment on the Magellan High Conviction Trust and
