Never read much about ESS on these pages. I have been doing some research and it seems a very good company. It owns a big chunk of both Syndicate Asset Management and STM Group. This is interesting as they are both consolidation plays which have been successful and this is reflected in their share price movements since inception. ESS takes big stakes at their creation. I also understand they own a big chunk of Noble Investments ( Baldwin the coin dealers ) which rumours report is in itself vastly under valued due to the size and quality of its inhouse coin collection. I have been accumulating stock slowly over a lengthy period and reckon this is one to watch. £ 3 by year end!

Trading Update Equity Special Situations Limited ('the Company') announces that the unaudited net asset value per share, as calculated on 31 December 2005, was 150p. The change in net asset value since the Company's last announcement on 23 September 2005 is materially due to the change in share price of Syndicate Asset Management plc ('SAM'), in which the Company owns 20 million shares representing 18.3% of the issued share capital. The share price of SAM has fallen from 113.5p when it floated on 23 September 2005 to a price of 65.5p as at 31 December 2005. http://www.companyannouncements.net/cgi-bin/articles/200601101510527244W.html so, base nav of 150p, as dont expect sam to go below 63p instit placing price. but it a waiting game until sam land a big deal. if/when they do then eqs benefits nicely. plus, everything else in eqs port is still currently pretty much in for free.

from c i t y w ire yesterday... Acquisitive fund management group Syndicate Asset Management has attracted a roster of intriguing new investors in a share issue to raise £33 million. http://www.companyannouncements.net/cgi-bin/articles/200509230700116576R.html Syndicate has been buying small fund management businesses and aims to take over a larger group with about £4 billion under management. In October Citywire revealed the company is a vehicle for Icelandic investment capital. Several of those investors, including investment fund Burdaras and media magnate Jon Olafsson, have increased their holdings at 60p a share. However, money has also flowed in from new investors such as banks Islandsbanki, Kaupthing and the Reykjavik Savings Bank. UK rival Savoy Investment Management (SMN) took a 1.4 million-share stake in the business. Savoy is chaired by former Tory leadership hopeful Ken Clarke and is in the midst of a shareholder battle over the performance of the company. Geneva-based SAAD Investments, chaired by Saudi businessman Maan Al-Sanea, and a number of mysterious vehicles operating out of offshore centres such as the British Virgin Islands and Monaco have also bought shares. Curiously, Chris Deering, former chairman and chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, has bought a small personal stake of 85,000 shares. Senior director Jonathan Freeman said: 'They agree with our view of fund management at the moment that it is full of very good fund managers who are very unhappy with the way the sector is organised.'

Syndicate Asset Management (SAM), which is planning to take over a UK fund management group with £4 billion under management, has appointed John Morton as an executive director. http://www.companyannouncements.net/cgi-bin/articles/200511081029567862T.html Syndicate, which debuted on AIM in September and bought wealth management group Ashcourt Holdings last month, made Ashcourt chief executive Morton a director earlier this week. SAM chairman David Pinckney said: 'I am delighted that John has agreed to join the board. Since our flotation last year we have reviewed a range of potential acquisition targets with the view to consolidating a number of existing fund management companies and look forward to building a broad fund management group in the future.' Last month C i t ywire revealed that Syndicate is backed by Icelandic money. Fund management groups of a size to appeal to Syndicate include Insight Investment Fund Management, Credit Suisse Asset Management and Standard Life Investments.
