The Chairman is more qualified, based on her investment experience, to be in that job than many others in similar roles. However, I would agree that this experience hasn't necessarily been used to good effect. And its a very hostile environment for ITs investing in unquoted "exotic" assets. They're not the only ones to be struggling with large discounts etc.

I will defend the managers and the Chair. IMHO, the above negative comment is either sorely mistaken? or a baseless slur?

Thick as mince? That's pretty damning. I'll have to re-examine the investment case based on this new information.

Almost 50% discount on remaining assets (the tricky ones) allows for a lot of this sort of stuff. There will be further mishaps, but 50% for what remains is too generous. Additionally, the NAV has become to enter more calm waters, or at least statistically.

I presume a strategy like that will have a good chunk of gearing. If you think you're good at something, then why not give it a shot in the arm?

Can't imagine too many abrdn strategies are attracting any new monies so could also be a switch in pricing basis.

As I read it they haven't sold it. It's just been marked to market which begs the question of how a ABRDN does their maths if they are reducing the value of the fund in one quarter by 20%. I cannot see that as right and assume the carrying value has been too high for some considerable time.

Shocking whatever the reason.

But presumably in the NAV now and has been for some time.

Selling a chunk of property in one go in this market was never going to end well! That's the downside to winding up part of the portfolio quickly. They wont have got great prices for the listed alternatives either. Probably had to sell these at near market lows. On the positive side the NAV is probably not going lower, near term anyway (income to accrue), and they can take their time with the private market stuff.

March factsheet out. Most of the public positions have been exited with the funds being held in near-cash situations.

A huge write-down (20%) in the European Residential Opportunities fund is the shocker!

Looks like they have stopped issuing factsheets and holding summaries which doesn't help

Attended AGM/GM 27/2/24 and spoke with a couple of ADIG Directors, after the formal parts, which I supported. Impressed on them that 'time is indeed money'. The sooner they liquidate positions, the lower the value that may be attainable. When they part with the easier to sell 'more liquid' holdings, as detailed to the meeting, the entirety of that circa 30% discount will (unless it re-rates) transfer to the 'less liquid' positions. So, If we have 106p? NAV now and an share price of (say) 74p (being 30% discounted) if (say) 24p (of undiscounted liquid assets) can be realised sooner, at close to par, then the NAV moves down to circa 82p and the post-capital redemption share price might move down to circa 50p? (74-24) taking it down to a 39% discount. There are ZERO guarantees here, but a future upwards re-rating may be entirely conceivable? as 'more time' is allowed for the less liquid off-market positions to mature, closer to (or even above stated NAV?)as the Board conceives 'may be possible'. So, I'd prefer to wait longer, rather than settle for less sooner, and privately expressed that view.

@grahamg8, you rightly mention the downside risks, but there's also upside risk. The private holdings may come out either at NAV or higher, with a few more years of investment growth behind them.

That which goes at a discount will be mainly due to being sold early - leading to earlier returns, and hence a better calculation.

Yes grahamg8 we are in violent agreement. I note also (and this may be relevant) that there is a negative correlation between discount and investment trust size at the moment. Those trusts with NAV under 100m seem particularly worse affected. Having arbed a few wind downs, there are opportunities there. But at some point the management will say it's no longer feasible to maintain a public listing, let's delist. It's best to be out by then, YMMV but I've been screwed by that more than once.

Thanks for the view, clearly more cautious than orhers outlined here however it's none the less worth considering.

A small note from me re the NAV "dips" in last week or so.

I'd say this is consistent with the cash going up as the liquid portfolio is realised, due to transaction costs and bid/offer slippage etc.

I had 5% costs for the liquid portfolio which is perhaps conservative, but I do note that 1p drop in NAV = £3m. The recent cash increase to £58m suggests a ~£50m liquidation. So maybe it cost ADIG £3m to raise £50m = 6% cost? I suspect this is just a coincidence!

CC, this is one of the reasons for the % discount - uncertainty around the 'reliability' of the NAV.

hmm. NAV dropped nearly a penny yesterday. (0.94p)

The 3% may possibly have been used to pay/invest into draw requirements in existing funds. i.e. "meet outstanding commitments in respect of its private
markets portfolio (such commitments amounting to c.£38.4 million in total)"
