INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

The Fund aims to produce high single digit returns, from a combination of capital appreciation and income, with a targeted annual yield of 4-5%.

The investment philosophy of the Fund is founded on the premise that exposure to private assets should earn a premium over listed equities and bonds over time. The manager believes that the growth in listed investment companies focusing on private assets provides an opportunity to emulate an endowment-style investment policy with enhanced liquidity. The Fund comprises a diversified portfolio of 20-30 positions in listed investment companies. It invests a minimum of 80% in private asset strategies including Infrastructure, Private Debt, Private Equity, Real Estate and other specialist managers.

The investment manager, Heptagon Capital, has strong expertise within private assets and sourcing specialist managers. The Fund is managed by Heptagon’s CIO, Arnaud Gandon, who has over 20 years’ investment experience.
