Investment Companies Quarterly Roundup - Q3 2020


Third Quarter 2020

As part of our commitment to providing free investment research, we have just published our first quarterly update of the year on the listed Investment Companies sector.


· Performance Data - Funds investing in high-potential private companies had a good month while China and Japan stood, from a top-down vantage point


· Major news stories - Witan Pacific became Baillie Gifford China Growth, taking the number of pure-China funds to three. Greencoat UK Wind launched a major fundraise, subsequently raising £400m. Elsewhere, JPMorgan Brazil lost its continuation vote and Secured Income published wind-down proposals.


· Money in and out - Around £630m was raised in net terms over the third quarter, once again led by sectors providing alternative income. Towards the end of the quarter, there were signs that the market for new issues was returning with a vengeance, with several funds hoping to launch. Amongst existing funds, capital raising was led by the aforementioned Greencoat UK Wind and Hipgnosis Songs.
