Performance
As at 30 April 2013 the NAV of the Fund was 94.2p, showing no change to the NAV as at 31 December 2012. As the consistency in the NAV shows, the performance of the Fund has been relatively stable in the period under review, with a small increase in the net assets as loan interest income received by the Fund exceeds its day to day running costs, an increase not yet significant enough to move the NAV per share.

There have been no changes to any unquoted investment valuations, with the entire portfolio currently valued at cost.

Investment activity
No investments have been made or realised during the period and a total of £17.5 million remains invested in unquoted investments.
