To provide investors with an attractive return by maximising the stream of tax-free dividend distributions from capital gains and income generated from a diversified portfolio of investments in small and medium sized companies, subject to ensuring sufficient liquidity to meet working capital requirements and any need to retain funds to remain at an economically viable size. The Company aims to create a balanced portfolio of growth companies. Investments are made selectively across a range of sectors. The Company invests in a range of securities including, but not limited to, ordinary and preference shares, loan stocks, convertible securities, warrants and fixed interest securities as well as cash and liquidity funds. Unquoted investments are usually structured as a combination of ordinary shares and loan stocks, while AIM investments are in ordinary shares. Investments are usually made in UK companies, although these may trade outside the UK. At least 70% of funds invested in companies as of the time of the initial investment will be invested in unquoted companies.
