Objective & Policy


Under the Listing Rules, the Company is required to seek the approval of Shareholders for any material change to its investment objective and investment policy.  The objective and policy below were approved by the Shareholders of the Company at a General meeting on the 25 January 2023.



Investment Objective

The Company’s investment objective is both to deliver long-term capital growth whilst preserving shareholders’ capital and to pay a regular dividend.


The performance target is to achieve net annualised total returns (in GBP) of at least 4 per cent. above the UK CPI over rolling five-year periods.


Investment Policy

The Company’s strategy to achieve its investment objective is to create a balanced portfolio of investments that is diversified both across asset classes and by geography. Holdings will be focussed on the following three main segments:


  1. Special Investments: opportunities including co-investments, special-purpose vehicles and thematic funds. These eclectic and episodic opportunities are generally hard-to-access investments targeting potential IRRs of 20 per cent. or better. These investments may be somewhat illiquid in nature, with an expected duration of 24 to 36 months.

  2. External Managers: allocations to pooled vehicles managed by third parties. These funds pursue fundamental strategies; and

  3. Direct Investments: targeted investments in listed securities, predominantly equities.


The Company’s underlying investments are expected to be primarily in equities and related instruments (which shall include, without limitation, preference shares, convertible debt instruments, equity-related and equity-linked notes and warrants) issued by quoted and unquoted portfolio companies as well as in partnerships, limited liability partnerships, offshore or un-regulated funds and other legal forms of entity where the investment has equity-like return characteristics. The Company may invest in publicly traded companies (including participating in the IPO of an existing unquoted company investment), subject to the investment restrictions below. The Company is not expected to take majority shareholder positions in portfolio companies but shall not be restricted from doing so.


Though the Company’s underlying investments are expected to be primarily in equities, the Company may also invest in securities and financial instruments of any kind, including, without limitation, sovereign debt and related options and/or futures and other fixed income instruments issued by sovereign borrowers or their agencies, equity and equity-related securities, bonds and other fixed-income securities, loans, futures, forward contracts, warrants, options, swaps, contracts for difference and other derivative instruments, currencies, commodities, pooled investment vehicles (which may be open-ended or closed-ended and established in any jurisdiction), money-market funds, commercial paper, certificates of deposit and other cash equivalents. Debt securities in which the Company may invest may be of investment-grade, sub-investment-grade, or unrated. In addition, the Company may pursue any of these strategies through privately negotiated investments as well as public market transactions. From time to time, the Company may acquire assets or securities that are illiquid and the fair value of which may not be readily derived from third-party sources.


The Company may use derivatives and similar instruments, whether for the purpose of capturing specific opportunities, to create return asymmetry, mitigate currency exposure or for capital preservation.

The Company may make investments directly or indirectly through special purpose vehicles, intermediate holding vehicles or other fund or similar structures or other vehicles where the Investment Manager considers that that this would be commercially beneficial or confer legal, regulatory or tax advantages, or provide the only practicable means of access to the relevant investment.

Investment Restrictions

The Company will invest and manage its assets with the object of spreading investment risk. It shall not be restricted in the jurisdictions or sectors in which it may invest. However, no more than 10 per cent. of the Company’s gross assets may be directly or indirectly (through derivatives or similar instruments) invested in any one investment or issuer, or allocated to a single external third-party manager, as at the time of investment. When fully invested, the Company will aim to allocate its assets between the three main investment segments within the below strategic ranges:


  1. Special Investments: 10 per cent. to 40 per cent. of gross assets

  2. External Managers: 30 per cent. to 60 per cent. of gross assets

  3. Direct Investments: 10 per cent. to 30 per cent. of gross assets


The Company will not be required to dispose of any investment or rebalance its portfolio as a result of a change in the respective value of any of its investments.


Not more than 10 per cent. of the Company’s gross assets at the time an investment is made will be invested in other closed-ended investment funds which are listed on the Official List.

Borrowing policy

The Board is empowered to borrow up to 100 per cent. of adjusted capital and reserves. The Board reviews the level of gearing (borrowings less cash) on an ongoing basis and sets a range at its discretion, with an upper limit set at 30 per cent. of the Company’s gross assets, measured at time of drawdown. Where the Company invests in portfolio companies indirectly (whether through a third-party manager, special purpose vehicles as holding entities or otherwise), notwithstanding the previous paragraph, indebtedness in such holding entity will not be included in the calculation of indebtedness of the Company provided that the provider of such debt only has recourse to the assets of the holding entity and does not have recourse to the other assets of the Company or other investments made by the Company.

Cash and portfolio management

The Company may hold cash on deposit and may invest in cash equivalent investments, which may include but shall not be limited to, short-term investments in money market funds, gilts, and tradeable debt securities.

There is no restriction on the amount of cash or cash equivalent investments that the Company may hold or where it is held. When fully invested, the Company will hold an appropriate value of the Company’s gross assets in cash or cash equivalent investments for the purposes of making follow-on investments and to manage working capital requirements of the Company.

The Company may also use derivative instruments. The Company may, but shall not be required to, hedge currency exposure in its portfolio.

Changes to the investment policy and breaches of
investment restrictions

As required by the Listing Rules, any material change to the investment policy of the Company will be made only with the approval of Shareholders. In the event of any breach of the investment restrictions applicable to the Company, Shareholders will be informed of the remedial actions to be taken by the Company through a Regulatory Information Service announcement.


Responsible Investing

The Company considers Responsible Investing to be part of its investment approach.  Responsible Investing is concerned with non-financial issues of investing, being the environment, social and governance (ESG) aspects.

The Company has appointed Marylebone to manage its investment assets. Further information on the ESG approach taken by Marylebone is available here.
