“Business as usual”
22 Mar 17
Strategic Equity Capital (SEC) announced Stuart Widdowson’s departure from GVQ Investment Management on 7 February 2017. GVQ stress that it is “business as usual” and say Stuart’s absence has no impact on the investment philosophy behind SEC, GVQ’s investment approach or SEC’s portfolio. Jeff Harris has stepped up to become lead portfolio manager and Adam Khanbhai becomes the new deputy manager. The management team is enthused about the prospects for SEC’s future performance as they say that former “problem children” within the portfolio are showing positive initial signs of recovery and they expect the market will recognise the latent value within the portfolio.

Celebrating five years since strategy change
10 Mar 17
It has been five years since Seneca Global Income and Growth Trust (SIGT) changed its strategy to allow its managers greater flexibility in managing its multi-asset portfolio. As this anniversary passes, SIGT has moved into the AIC’s flexible investment sector where it is one of the best-performing trusts, yet its return volatility is markedly below the peer-group average. Seven months ago, SIGT introduced a new discount control mechanism (DCM) that is keeping the Trust trading at close to a zero discount. It is designed to give investors confidence that they can trade in and out of SIGT at close to NAV. The board believe that this will provide SIGT with a strong foundation on which it can grow.

The Russian market has been rebounding on the back of a strengthening oil price but remains one of the cheapest emerging markets. The manager thinks the market could rise further from here. The economy is on an improving trend but, if President Trump eases sanctions, this could provide a significant tailwind. JPMorgan Russian Securities (JRS) offers the only pure play on Russia within the investment companies market. It comes with an attractive yield and one of the most experienced investment managers in the sector, Oleg Biryulyov, who has been managing JRS since it was launched, and Russian equity funds for 23 years.

On 9 December 2016, the board of Aberdeen Frontier Markets (AFMC) announced that take up of its 100% tender offer had exceeded expectations. After deliberating on the future of the fund, the board is asking shareholders to approve a shift to direct investing in frontier markets. Shareholders still have the opportunity of a cash exit if desired but the manager is injecting up to £10m into the fund to keep it viable.
