Alliance Trust has both a modern vision and a rich heritage. Established in 1888, we have successfully navigated many market crises and adapted our strategy over time. Today, we offer a responsibly managed portfolio, which provides individual UK investors with exclusive access to the top stock selections of some of the world’s best investment managers;1 at a competitive cost.
Our multi-manager approach reduces risk and volatility, smoothing out the peaks and troughs of performance normally associated with a single manager.

High conviction stock picking gives the portfolio potential to outperform world stock markets.2,3
We have increased our dividend every year since 1966, putting us among the top four of the Association of Investment Companies’ “Dividend Heroes”
Shareholders benefit from having Willis Towers Watson (WTW) as our investment manager.4 WTW is a leading global investment group, directly managing $148.65 billion for institutional investors and advising them on $2.6 trillion.6 Its scale helps us to keep costs down for investors, while the global breadth and depth of WTW’s resources has enabled it to build and manage a diverse team of nine best-in-class1 Stock Pickers with complementary investment approaches for Alliance Trust.
WTW tasks each Stock Picker with investing in no more than 20 stocks in which they have the highest level of conviction.7 The resulting portfolio is diversified across countries and industries but its individual holdings are very different from any index-tracking fund.
We believe this diversified but highly active approach makes Alliance Trust an ideal holding for all generations of investors, whether you’re paying for university or a first home, saving for retirement or leaving a legacy.
