Would be good to pass and hold on to 100p. We just don't seem to be able to firm up at that level.

ABS investments in TF will include a large proportion of FRN's...useful should interest rates rise

I've done a bit of work on this and think it could be a buy. Looks like the NAV did very badly in autumn 2018 but this should shortly drop out of the 3y numbers - optically this will make performance look better and should help. From what I can tell the main thing that weighed on earlier returns was the big position in catastrophe insurance linked instruments, and the excessive and expensive gearing. Neither of these should be an issue going forward and of course we have a new manager. The other thing that hasn't helped is they have been very slow establishing the positions in the private real asset funds - it takes quite a long time for these things to get invested and start to produce returns. The good news is these now seem to be up and running and should do well hopefully. Regarding the ABS investments, I am pretty relaxed about these as I believe they are mainly senior tranches on very comfortable LTVs so very low risk (would probably need a 30% fall in house prices for these to be at risk).

NAV now 121.54. Market can remain irrational longer than I can remain patient. I'm hold on for the moment though.

The NAV continues to increase but the discount to NAV is growing resulting in the share price clawing it's way up. Plenty of buyers but some very determined sellers and 100p seems to be a barrier for the moment. I have just taken a look at the July factsheet and I'd delighted to see they have trimmed the Twenty Four Asset Backed Opportunties Fund (mostly Residential MBS and CLO I think) from 8.0% to 7.4% compared with June. I like this move as I perceive this market to be near a high and ADIG have done well from it over the last year. It would be great if they sold the whole lot and used the cash to buy back more shares. TwentyFour ABO Fund

Spec, wish I had bought some NSI, looked at that so many times as well, but the % spread out me off - in other words excuse making!. When working in sales many moons ago missed my first ever monthly target and attempted to offer an explanation to my then manager - he replied ..excuses, bullsh1t, reasons!!. Never missed another one. My area area at the time was the wife of a Michael Page main board director, remember her telling me you could put your house on this, that was circa 1993, the share price was 76 pence from memory.

Investment objective (effective from AGM date of 23 February 2021) The Company seeks to provide income and capital appreciation over the long term through investment in a globally diversified multi-asset portfolio. Performance measure NAV total return (defined as change in NAV plus dividends reinvested) of 6% per annum over a rolling five year period.

Spec, thanks for the view and happen to share your circumspection. I keep ADIG on a watchlist and get the 99% of the market being priced for perfection rational.

Thanks @HP - valid points, CLO exposure isn't huge, but the key point to me is it's there, and how many realise it's there. I'd say same for high-yield bonds/EM bonds. Something else you've said and so have I - a number of the funds have cash weightings. ADIG are paying fees on holdings partly in cash, and you're paying ADIG's on top. Which circles round to wondering how sustainable and consistent the 6% target is, when not fully invested. Again, portfolio feels like generally risky (with lots of it, to give the illusory comfort of diversification) coupled with some very low risk. But you can make that yourself, and know what's in (tho not at 18% discount). I just don't buy that ADIG is a fairly certain earner. (HL thinks 5% geared btw - not much, & may be wrong, vs the indirectly held cash). @EI - indeed. Perhaps because the super-low interest rate trade has partially run its course, unless we're going lower than 0.1%. Eg renewables sector. Not anti-ADIG, but think the hugely spread portfolio is largely spread across the same risk (likely interest rate risk), whilst masquerading as low risk and diversified. The judgement is whether the discount compensates, but the manager's confidence that it'll go to par seems unwarranted.

Why has NAV growth been so stagnant over the last 12 months when current conditions could not be more supportive across multiple asset classes. An approx 2% NAV gain over August 2020 levels.

After reading some of the above posts I had to double check I hadn't invested in some dodgy loan fund lol. This is a multi-asset trust and at the last fact sheet date (end June 2021) the portfolio split was; Private Markets 41.9% (infrastructure, private equity, real estate etc) Fixed Income and Credit 27.8% (bonds, loans etc) Listed Alternatives 20.9% (listed stuff like bpcr, supr, resi, prsr, ukw etc) Equities 10.9% Net Cash -1.5% Whatever clos they own will be included in Fixed Income & Credit which includes stuff like TwentyFour Asset Backed Fund, Neuberger CLO fund (4.5% of the folio). They also have some emerging market bonds. TwentyFour fund is the largest investment at 9% of the folio. fyi it comprises 63% bonds, 26% cash and 11% other. So it may include some clos in "other". Total exposure to clos is obviously low versus the total NAV though. https://www.fidelity.co.uk/factsheet-data/factsheet/GB00B9876293-mi-twentyfour-am-asset-backed-incm-a-inc/portfolio The plan going forwards is to increase exposure to private markets to 50% and reduce the others Personally I'm happier holding something like ADIG (which is also ungeared) than a common garden equity trust just now. Most equity trusts seem to have fully recovered to pre-pandemic levels. Some are much higher.

Ha ha thanks both. Not sure how I've not ploughed through ADIG before. Been out, back to finish the de Silva presentation: Likens ADIG to RIT & SMT - he should be so lucky. "Should be trading close to par in a couple of years". "Stable and consistent private markets portfolio". "£80bn of assets under management [the group] and can drive costs down". Currency hedged back to Sterling, a cost risk in itself (as shown by those caught out by margin requirements). Grudgingly like him but fear he's wrong - strategy seems scattergun, and mostly taking on similar sorts of risk. Which isn't to say it won't do well, but basically "Buy everything esoteric that promises a high yield, and consider yourself diversified because you've bought so much of it". If the choice was money in the bank at less than 1%, or ADIG on a big discount yielding 5.5%, you'd probably punt ADIG. But seems too much difficult-to-quantify risk to me, even beyond opaque CLOs. I'm still not entirely sure what it holds, particularly within the funds. Again, wonder how many holders had an idea of the CLO side. I think they'll consistently pay the dividend, but his "longer term capital gains" may be anything but, and hence the discount remain. He's optimistic on the income covering the divi soon - and could well be right - but we've seen with a lot of the renewable ITs what can happen to capital values. Struggling to reach a conclusion - "not bad, not for me (at the moment)" I think. Good luck holders :) Does at least have scale, & will look again on dips, or change opinion on a dime.

CC2014, Specto is by no means a stranger to trusts, and the only surprising thing is that he hasn't been on this door step before. We don't always agree on the merits of certain funds, but I take his views very seriously.

Dear Mr. SpectoAcc, We note that you have arrived at ADIG, probably attracted by some discount in a table seeking a low risk stock paying a decent yield. We regret to inform you that all such stocks have been pumped up to the sun, moon and stars by quantative easing and if not by that by very many posts on Twitter. Research shows that if you scavange every single stock in the universe of possible choices and put in very many hours of research it may be possible to find the odd gem of a possibilty. It won't actually be a gem, it will still be over-priced, but if the share price where to drop 2% that would probably be enough to encourage you to execute the buy button with your broker. Regrettably, our research also shows that should any such stock actually drop 2%, there will be only extremely low liquidity and there are another 10,000 investors in the same position as yourself all ready to pounce on the opporuntity of a lifetime. 9,999 of these investors will be less risk adverse than you and be willing to press the buy button first. That's what it feels like to me anyway. The only stuff I can find to buy is stuff I already own and I'm reluctant too as I've got enough already or I just need the share price to drop a bit but it never quite gets there. I'm happy with my investments but would prefer I had far more holdings than I do. Enjoy ADIG whatever you do. It's a good story. Whether it's a good investment at 98p only time will tell
