The AIFM receives a management fee of 0.75% p.a. payable monthly in arrears of the month-end market cap of the issued Ords excluding treasury shares up to GBP 100m and 0.65% above GBP 100m. No performance fee will be paid. The Management Agreement may be terminated by either party giving 12 months written notice.

Dividend Policy

In financial years where there is a surplus, the Directors are obliged to declare dividends in order for the Company to comply with the rules relating to investment trusts, which provide that an investment trust is not able to retain in excess of 15% of its income from shares and securities. In such event, the Directors may pay an interim dividend (if it appears to the Directors to be justified by the financial position of the Company at the relevant time) and/or pay a final dividend after the relevant AGM of the Company.

Data policy - All information should be used for indicative purposes only. You should independently check data before making any investment decision. HL cannot guarantee that the data is accurate or complete, and accepts no responsibility for how it may be used. Objective, holding data, trust manager and bio information, dividend policy, asset split and fee structure are provided by Morningstar.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
