A great buy for income and growth

A major problem for UK equity income seekers is concentration risk – many funds have similar top holdings because a large proportion of UK dividends come from just a handful of mega-cap stocks. One way around this is to look to overseas equity income or UK income funds focused on medium-sized and smaller companies. Unicorn UK Income Fund ticks both of these boxes: it has a bias to UK small-caps that generate most of their revenues via overseas growth, in particular from fast-growing economies in the Far East and China. This different approach means the fund is a useful diversifier in a portfolio.
