To date, we have been gradual in allocating funds to investments to ensure capital preservation. The primary strategies we have targeted are; ? Discount Capture – The Company aims to take advantage of large discounts to NTA among Listed Investment Companies. ? Arbitrage – Typically companies in the later stages of a takeover providing shorter term trade opportunities to benefit from lower risk arbitrage trades. Depending on our view of the stock, we may look to short stocks* in order to hedge out risk or retain the underlying market exposure. ? Deep Value Investments – Overlooked and out of favour investments where we expect an eventual re-rating of the share price. ? Event Driven – Our preference has been to take a position with an expected Event leading to an increase in the share price Our expectation in the current climate is to continue to focus on these strategies. The Company’s investment style is best described as Opportunistic with the aim of providing an absolute return. Ongoing Litigation The loans to John Bridgeman and JB Financial Group remain outstanding. Although both companies ability to repay these loans looks questionable, a recovery for BHD would provide a significant uplift to shareholders. As a result, we have continued to pursue the outstanding debts.
