Investment Activity

The Company's strategy is to offer combined exposure to GAM Diversity and to Triple Point managed VCT qualifying investments. This strategy is intended to provide substantial exposure to a fund of hedge funds within a Venture Capital Trust.

 

The Company continues to satisfy the test of being 70% invested in qualifying holdings.

 

During the period the Company made no new qualifying investments. The GAM Diversity exposure contributed a loss of £51,000   to the overall reduction in net asset value of £230,000, the remainder coming from a revaluation and realisations of qualifying investments.

                                           

The Company holds 50% of the issued share capital of Lorngreen Limited, which in turn holds an investment in GAM Diversity 2.5XL. The Company also has an exposure to GAM Diversity held through a note executed with Bank Julius Baer. This means that approximately 51% of the Company's net asset value is exposed to the performance of GAM Diversity, which fell by 1.3% during the period.

 

Material Events and Transactions

During the period no shares were issued and no shares were purchased by the Company for cancellation.
