RIT Capital Partners, the investment trusted started by Lord Jacob Rothschild, was on the up on news the company is offering investors a big increase in dividends, despite reporting a drop in its net asset value (NAV).
Also rising was Edinburgh Investment Trust, a group focused on UK securities, after it put in a resilient performance in the year to March 31st, growing NAV by a tenth in spite of the volatile market conditions during the period.
Following suit was real estate investment trust Great Portland Estates, which has bought interests in two properties in the heart of London's St James's district from fund management firm Henderson Global Investors.
Mining group Aquarius Platinum tracked platinum prices lower to settle in the bottom spot. Goldman Sachs has also taken an axe to its price target on the company's stock.
