Since its launch in 1999, the Trust has been offering access to the potential benefits of investment in unlisted companies – an opportunity that typically lies beyond the reach of individual investors.


An established and experienced team, with a continually expanding network, has successfully focused and continues to focus their efforts on building an appropriately diversified portfolio of high quality assets for the Company’s shareholders.


The Company’s portfolio is comprised of private equity funds and stakes in individual private businesses, which have been carefully selected with a view to generating capital growth over the medium to long term.


Our dividend policy

The Company aims to pay quarterly dividends with an annual yield equivalent to not less than four per cent of the average of the published NAV per Ordinary Share as at the end of each of its last four financial quarters prior to the announcement of the relevant quarterly dividend and not less than the prior quarter’s dividend.
