Investment trusts can be a great way for UK investors to access the stock market. Not only do they provide instant diversification but, in general, they’re also very cost-effective.Here, I’m going to highlight two top growth-focused investment trusts I’d be happy to buy for my own portfolio today. Both own a selection of world-class companies and have strong long-term track records.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A top growth investment trust for 2021One investment trust I hold in high regard is Monks (LSE: MNKS). It’s an under-the-radar offering from Baillie Gifford – the investment manager that runs the highly popular Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust. The aim of this trust is to generate capital growth over the long term by investing in global equities.What I like about Monks is that it has a very well diversified portfolio. Unlike SMT, it doesn’t take large bets on higher-risk stocks. This reduces risk significantly. This is illustrated by the fact that while SMT is down about 8% this year after the tech stock sell-off, Monks is flat. Having said that, SMT has been the stronger performer over a 12-month time horizon, returning 114% versus 82% for Monks.There are currently some great stocks in Monks’ portfolio. At 31 January, Alphabet, Amazon.com, and Microsoft were all top-10 holdings. This investment trust isn’t solely focused on tech stocks though. You’ll also find companies such as insurer Prudential, alcoholic beverages giant Pernod Ricard, and make-up powerhouse Estee Lauder in the portfolio.Of course, there are risks to consider here. One is the trust has a bias towards US stocks. At 31 January, nearly 50% of the trust was in US stocks. If they underperform, the trust could underperform.However overall, I think this is a fantastic growth-focused investment trust. With ongoing charges of just 0.48% per year, I see this trust as a great way to get global equity exposure.Capital growth and incomeAnother investment trust I like is Bankers (LSE: BNKR). It’s also a global equity-focused product. This trust was launched all the way back in 1888, so it’s fair to say it’s been established for a while.While Bankers has a focus on growth, it also aims to provide a bit of dividend income too. Currently, it offers a yield of around 2%. It’s worth noting this trust is part of an elite group known as ‘AIC Dividend Heroes’. These are trusts that have consistently increased their dividends for at least 20 years in a row. Bankers is actually the joint record-holder for consecutive annual dividend increases with 54 registered.Like Monks, this investment trust owns some great stocks. Top holdings include the likes of Microsoft, Mastercard, and Visa. Performance hasn’t quite been as strong as that of Monks. Over the last 12 months, the trust has ‘only’ returned about 42%. However, it’s worth noting that during last year’s stock market crash, this trust held up better than Monks.One risk to consider is it has quite a high exposure to the financial sector (nearly 25%). If this sector underperforms, it could impact the trust’s performance.Overall however, I see this as a very solid growth-focused investment trust. Ongoing charges are a very-reasonable 0.50% per year. Edward Sheldon owns shares in Alphabet, Amazon, MasterCard, Prudential, Microsoft, and Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The rise and fall of the Novacyt share priceNovacyt is a medical diagnostics business. And before Covid-19 came into the picture, it was a relatively small company that developed and sold pathogen testing kits for the medical, life science, and food industries. The pandemic has caused chaos for many sectors. But for Novacyt, it presented an incredible opportunity.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Using its knowledge, the company developed and launched the first Covid-19 rapid testing kits months ahead of its competitors. With demand surging and the supply practically non-existent, Novacyt found itself in a mini-monopoly that triggered a 900% rise in revenue. Needless to say, this level of growth is extraordinary. So seeing the Novacyt share price surge by millionaire-making percentages in the space of a year is not that surprising. Alas, this explosive growth would not last.Some 50% of the newly-found revenue stream came from a single contract signed with the UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). Despite Novacyt delivering on all promised supply milestones, the DHSC decided not to extend the contract in early April this year. In other words, 50% of Novacyts expected revenue for 2021 just disappeared.The management team is pursuing legal action against the DHSC to enforce its contract. But there is no guarantee that this will yield a different result. And so, the Novacyt share price has plummeted.Moving ForwardSeeing a massive portion of its income disappear is a painful sight, especially when there haven’t been any announcements regarding how this lost revenue will be replaced. However, it was undoubtedly going to happen eventually. After all, once the pandemic is over, the need for these rapid testing kits will likely decline.Developing and launching new medical products is an expensive endeavour. But thanks to its stellar performance last year, the firm’s cash balance now sits at £91.8m. Beyond providing a high level of liquidity, it can fund this necessary research and fuel any potential acquisitions. Providing these ventures bear fruit, the Novacyt share price could begin climbing again over the long term.Closing thoughtsIn my experience, investing in a company embroiled in a lawsuit is not a particularly sound strategy. But should Novacyt emerge victorious, the return of its lost revenue will undoubtedly send its share price surging once more.Personally, I’m not interested in taking this risk. Court battles can be long, expensive and distracting for the management team who should be focused on running the business. It could be many months or even years before this matter is resolved. And by then, the need for rapid Covid-19 testing kits may no longer exist. Therefore I won’t be adding the shares to my portfolio today. 2020 was a game-changing year for Novacyt (LSE:NCYT) that saw its share price explode from 14p to over 850p. That’s a return of nearly 6,000% in the space of a year! But since the start of 2021, more than half of this gain has been wiped out. And last week, this downward trajectory continued. What’s causing this extreme volatility? See all posts by Zaven Boyrazianlast_img read more

The project Summer House in Southern Burgenland (Austria) describes a sharp-edged cubature which fits into its surroundings through its simplicity and homogeneous appearance. In being used as a summer house, and by virtue of the installation of a wine cellar with production surfaces at a later date, the building’s design is oriented by the cubature of the Kellerstöckel(wine house) typical of the Southern Burgenland region. Save this picture!© Martin WeißThe cellar contains rooms for wine storage and production; the aboveground rooms are for residential use. The cellar has been executed in a ferroconcrete massive construction. The ground floor and first floor were constructed as a pure wood construction. Here, the undisguised wooden cross layer elements were rendered effective not only in their structural-static functions but also as design elements.Save this picture!© Martin WeißAs a counter weight, the wooden construction material employed on a large-scale stands vis-à-vis exposed concrete and steel materials. The materials were consciously employed in an untreated, undisguised state; in their combination, they form a homogeneous ambiance. As the summer house is not inhabited during the winter months, a larch grid mantle was developed which can be shut completely. During the uninhabited winter months, the house is thus unobtrusively and sculpturally situated in the landscape.Save this picture!© Martin WeißIn order to achieve this, folding and flap shutters were developed which, when shut, flush with the façade and, also coated with rhombus boarding, melt into the mantle. In the summer, the shutters work against aestival overheating: when opened – as canopies – and when shut. The sharp edges of the cubature are formed by copper corner plates. The terrace area, also formulated as a larch grid, forms a sort of shadow of the building. The mantle is thus carried forward in design in the outside space.Save this picture!© Martin WeißProject gallerySee allShow lessSuperbowl Project / Supermachine StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Save this picture!© Martin Weiß+ 18 Share Photographs:  Martin Weiß Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJudith Benzer ArchitekturOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBergern Im DunkelsteinerwaldHousesAustriaPublished on May 15, 2012Cite: “Summer House In Southern Burgenland / Judith Benzer Architektur” 15 May 2012.

The project for this property intended for a family had a very specific program right from the start. The house boasts an unobstructed open-plan area to house the communal rooms, facing east and allowing maximum window space. The bathrooms face west with minimum apertures.

The fully rational first floor has four bedrooms of identical layout facing east, with 3 bathrooms facing west.

The access staircase merges with a gallery on the first floor while giving continuity to both floors. Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe limited dimensions of the plot meant that we had to be very aware of the occupancy restrictions, so we designed a compact structure that reduced ratios and thus improving thermal insulation.

Since 1st April, the English versions of Wikipedia, YouTube and Blogspot have been made accessible again, but thousands of websites are still blocked, including the vast majority of foreign-based news sites in Chinese, such as the Chinese service of the BBC.“It is a step forward in Internet access in China, but to only unblock the English versions of these sites is not enough and does not demonstrate that the Chinese authorities are making progress in free expression online,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “This decision comes at a time when Hu Jia has just been jailed for three and a half years for posting articles on the Internet. We urge the Chinese authorities to guarantee that the unblocking of these sites is not just for the period of the Olympic Games and simply a charm offensive aimed at the international community.” The organisation also called for the lifting of censorship on Chinese language websites. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 1st April voiced its concern about online censorship in China and urged the authorities to ensure that the media can do their job “before and after the Olympic Games”. Some foreign media websites, such as that of Radio Canada/CBC, and international organisations like Reporters Without Borders, have not been unblocked. China has five government offices dedicated to Internet censorship and remains the world’s largest prison for cyber-dissidents, 48 of whom are currently behind bars.

This is a long way from the democratic reforms that King Mohammed announced on 17 June.”The press freedom organization added: “It is time that Morocco turned the page on the archaic practice of political interference in the media and judicial spheres if it wants its proclaimed democratic principles to become a reality.”Reached in Dubai, Omar Makhfi told Reporters Without Borders: “The 20 February opposition movement issued a call on 19 June for demonstrations against the holding of the referendum. During the news programme, the presenter interviewed our Morocco correspondent, Jalal Makhfi, by telephone about the reactions in Morocco to the king’s speech. Our correspondent referred to the demonstrations and quoted the opposition movement’s communiqué in a completely neutral and professional manner. The station then contacted the minister for the government’s viewpoint. But instead of answering the commentator’s questions, Khalid Naciri attacked our correspondent, accusing him of being pro-20 February.“After the interview, the minister called the station’s interview coordinator and told her he was going to demand a political accounting for the journalist. We took another look at the interview and found no violation of professional ethics. But we called the minister to allow him to express his views on the constitution, without the dispute with our correspondent getting in the way. As a result, he was able speak on the air a second time.“The minister then called the United Arab Emirates embassy in Rabat to complain about Dubai TV’s Morocco correspondent. Two days later, on 21 June, the station’s news director told me that my brother and I had been fired. The station had no role in this. The news director was flabbergasted when he read me the note from the department of human resources. It took effect immediately. The next day, I was unemployed. But the station was honest with me.“It is now 29 June and I still have not been told why I was fired, although I worked for Dubai TV for eight years and my contract had just been renewed, on 11 June. All they did was tell me verbally: ‘We have no criticism to make against you.’ What’s serious is that this matter did not remain at the media level. It is the first time that a minister has used his status as a government representative to settle a personal score and obtain the dismissal of a journalist he did not like.” April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alertslast_img read more
