| I am happy to hold a few of these shares. I recently had a little dividend payment and am happy to see the SP quite stable during these turbulent times. I can only see better times ahead in the long term.
I can think of nowhere better to invest my hard earned at present. By Blowfly

| Troy charges 1% and Personal Assets charges nil. I have both shares. Gold is also physical in Personal Assets By Galdalf

| Forgot to put a link to the current portfolio:
It's basically the Woodford strategy, with gold and index linked Treasuries, and some Buffet too!!

| The trust seems to be positioned very well, with defensives, gold bullion and index-linked treasuries in the US and Singapore.
That's the best asset mix for a period such as this. By bloke downa pub

| I can't believe that I saw a post on here saying "this is sleep easy investing". This trust uses so many return-chasing strategies it's unbelievable - stock picking, commodities trading, long/short strategies, a broad investment mandate and market timing.
None of the above strategies are a free lunch, and aggregately mean that you are taking large risks and need luck to succeed. They've had this luck in the last 10 years, but BE WARNED - this is NOT sleep-easy investing.
I also feel the executive director drinks too much before he writes his reports. Who really cares about the fact he's fed up with images in the annual reports. If I were diplomatic I would say the whole set-up is eccentric, but another, slightly cruder word comes to mind - farcical. BN By badnews

| I admired PNL from afar for years but was put off by the cost of individual shares and felt that as a result with the monthly savings plan there was a risk that significant amounts of cash would be left uninvested - and at a time when interest rates on cash were much higher.
For the same reason and following the move of the mandate to Troy, is there any benefit to owning PNL @ £270/share rather than Trojan O unit trust at @£1.8 p/unit (acc. units) or £1.6 for the income units ; the portfolios are essentially the same. £500pm could leave me with @ £230 uninvested in the IT but nearly fully invested in the UT.
The unit /shares prices have moved in parallel over 3,6 & 12 months.
Trojan is a growth & income managed UT fund whereas PNL "seeks to preserve capital values". Will be interesting to see if there is a divergence between the IT and UT in the future.
Would be interested in comments from holders of PNL. By sijaro1956
| Dividend Declaration
The Board of Personal Assets Trust plc has today declared a first interim dividend for the year ended 30 April 2010 of £2.55 per share. The dividend will be paid on 22 October 2009 to shareholders on the register on 2 October 2009. The ex-dividend date will be 30 September 2009.
The Board's stated dividend policy is for the present dividend rate to grow in real terms and never to cut the dividend rate, so shareholders know that each half-yearly payment will at least equal the previous one. Therefore, the second interim dividend for the year ended 30 April 2010, expected to be paid in April 2010, will be at least £2.55 per share and the total dividend for the year will be not less than £5.10.
