This significantly exceeded the funds raised by new LIC/LIT offers in the previous two years and lifted the total number of LICs & LITs on the ASX to 105 by the end of November 2017, for a total market capitalisation of $38.2bn. Three entities accounted for $2.6bn of the funds raised in 2017 with Magellan Global Trust (ASX:MGG) raising over $1.5bn, VGI Partners Global Investments (ASX:VG1) $550m and MCP Master Income Trust (ASX:MXT) $516m.
