Barclays won't let you do anything listed on specialist funds market segment only or ALL THEIR CUSTOMERS WILL GO BANKRUPT OUT OF STUPIDITY. Or something like that.
Interesting that today I went to Barclays to buy some-I used to own and then sold through my full service broker- and they told me they could not sell them to me as they were too complicated-talk about the nanny state and I find their portfolio disclosure good their corporate structure simple and they are for me easy to understand.

No material adverse impacts have been noted within the Company's portfolio to date. However, given the unprecedented decision, the Board continues to monitor the situation for potential risks to the Company's investments. Equally, the Board remains alert to possible new investment opportunities that may arise. ART continues to remain focused on investments that offer the potential to deliver high risk-adjusted returns by way of value enhancement through active asset management, improvement of net rental income, selective deployment of capital expenditure and the ability to undertake strategic sales when the achievable price is accretive to returns. H2O shopping centre, Madrid The H2O shopping centre investment in Madrid attracted record visitor numbers in the first half of 2016, with an increase of over 9.3% above the same period in 2015. This was considerably above the overall national footfall index increase of 1.5%. The increase in footfall generates improved store sales performance, with like-for-like tenant sales increasing by 7.6% over the first half of the year. This reflects the asset management improvements implemented under ART's ownership, including an improved commercial mix and upgraded public areas, aided by a general underlying improvement in the Spanish economic environment. In the year to date, 11 new lease contracts were signed with further new leases currently being documented. Residential private rented sector ("PRS") ART's investment in the PRS sector targets the increasing growth opportunities identified in the private rented residential market as a result of rising occupier demand and an undersupply of accommodation. The opportunity exists to create a portfolio delivering a high yielding return on equity. The securing of a portfolio of critical mass will afford participation in a maturing market which is attracting greater institutional investment. The Company's PRS investments offer scope to create resilient equity income returns at an attractive yield on cost, with potential for operating leverage to further enhance returns. The investments also offer scope for capital growth as the sites mature or planning is enhanced. The investments provide the Company with flexibility to add value by either constructing the development, funded with either debt or contractor finance, and subsequently holding the completed assets as investments; or, alternatively, forward selling all or some of the developed units. ART may also potentially benefit from government support for borrowings secured against PRS assets under the private rented sector housing guarantee scheme. Unity and Armouries, Birmingham In July 2015, ART announced the acquisition of Unity and Armouries, a development located in central Birmingham with planning consent for 90,000 net developable square feet comprising 162 residential apartments with ground floor commercial areas. The project architect and the specialist design team have been selected. The existing detailed planning consent is being reviewed for possible enhancements to meet best in class PRS requirements. A full appraisal of the floor plans has been completed, converting the layout to PRS suitable designs. The preferred contractor has been identified and a value engineering process is underway to identify the most efficient and effective construction processes and potential cost savings. Monk Bridge, Leeds In December 2015, ART announced the purchase of Monk Bridge, a central Leeds development site. The site has a total area of 1.7 hectares (4.2 acres) with implemented planning consent for 269 units totalling 140,000 square feet across two buildings with potential for ground floor commercial development within existing disused railway arches. The development earlier had outline consent, now lapsed, for 720 units, totalling 392,000 net saleable square feet. The project has a potential gross development value in excess of GBP55 million. The design team has been selected and the project design is being reviewed to potentially enhance the detailed planning consent to meet best in class PRS requirements. Renewables energy infrastructure Post period end, the Company sold its investment in a long leasehold site for a biofuel infrastructure development in Acharn, Scotland generating a profit of circa GBP0.1 million on an investment of GBP1.8 million over the hold period. The Company continues to consider infrastructure investments to add asset class diversity to the its portfolio whilst also offering the potential to deliver long term secure and predictable inflation-linked income streams with the potential for associated capital growth that is central to ART's current investment focus. High yielding debt Increased debt liquidity from both traditional and new lenders in the market which reflected a perception that risks and asset pricing had normalised or improved is likely to be tested in the immediate period post the UK Brexit referendum. However, the increased potential for central bank interest rates to remain lower for longer is likely to support investor demand for real estate and asset backed sectors in general. We remain alert to the new asset backed lending opportunities that could arise for ART if competition subdues. Industrial Multi Property Trust plc ("IMPT") The Company provides a subordinated debt facility to IMPT which expires in December 2018 and earns a coupon of 15% per annum. ART's loan position sits between 61.6% to 73.3% loan to value based on the 30 June 2016 valuation. Active UK Real Estate Fund plc ART provides a GBP9.6 million two-year mezzanine facility, which matures in November 2016 and earns a coupon of 9.0% per annum. Post period end, ART's loan to AURE was reduced from GBP9.6 million to GBP7.1 million. After this amortisation, ART's loan position sits between 40.0% to 54.5% loan to value based on the 30 June 2016 valuation. Ground rent investments Freehold Income Authorised Fund ("FIAF") ART invests in a fund which holds a diversified portfolio of UK residential property freehold ground rents with a view to achieving steady and predictable returns, a consistent income stream and prospects for growth. The Company has invested GBP18.9 million as at 30 June 2016 in FIAF, an open-ended fund that invests in UK freehold ground rents with a net asset value of GBP240 million as at 30 June 2016. The following highlights were reported in the FIAF fact sheet as at 30 June 2016 (published in July 2016): -- FIAF owns over 64,000 freeholds with a gross annual ground rent income of circa GBP8.4 million. -- FIAF continues its unbroken 23 year track record of positive inflation beating returns. -- 83% of its freeholds have a form of inflation protection through periodic uplifts linked to Retail Price Index (RPI), property values or fixed uplifts. -- No debt had been drawn. Net inflows during the dealing month to 12 July 2016 were GBP1.9 million with minimal redemptions. The total return on ART's investment in FIAF for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 was 7.6% (annualised post tax return). FIAF's assets are defensive in nature, very long dated (with an average lease length in excess of 100 years) and have much greater security of income than standard property. FIAF's property portfolio has increased in value at its last valuation at 30 June 2016. Other investments Galaxia, India On 2 February 2011, ART recommenced arbitration proceedings against its development partner Logix Group in order to protect its Galaxia investment. During January 2015, the Arbitral Tribunal, by a majority, decreed that Logix and its principals had breached the terms of the shareholders' agreement and has awarded the Company: -- Return of its entire capital invested of INR 450 Million (equivalent to GBP5.0m using an exchange rate as at 30 June 2016) along with interest at 18% per annum from 31 January 2011 to 20 January 2015. -- All costs incurred towards the arbitration. -- A further 15% interest per annum on all sums was awarded to the Company from 20 January 2015 until the actual date of payment by Logix of the award. The Arbitral Tribunal has also ruled that the Company has no obligation or liability to fund the outstanding NOIDA lease rent under the shareholders agreement. Logix have appealed the Arbitral Tribunal decision in the Delhi High Court and hearings are ongoing. The Company is actively seeking recovery of the sums awarded and a charge over the private residence of the principals of Logix, Shakti Nath, Meena Nath and Vikram Nath, has been granted by the courts of India. Following the determination of the arbitration noted above, the award to the Company represents a potential realisation of over GBP10.0 million. ART continues to hold the indirect investment at INR 450 million (GBP5.0 million) in the accounts due to uncertainty over timing and final value. Share buybacks On 9 March 2016, the Company published a circular giving notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting on 1 April 2016. Consistent with the Company's commitment to shareholder value, the Company asked its shareholders to approve a general authority allowing the Company to acquire up to 24.99% of the Voting Share Capital during the period expiring on the earlier of (i) the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting of the Company in 2017 and (ii) 4 September 2017. The shareholders approved the proposal. Results and dividends Adjusted earnings per share were 2.0p for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 (7.0p: 12 months to 31 March 2016). The unaudited net asset value per ordinary share of the Company was 141.7p at 30 June 2016 (137.9p: 31 March 2016). There was no revaluation of the Company's directly owned investment properties during the quarter to 30 June 2016. The increase in NAV reflects the earnings for the period and positive foreign exchange movements. The Board announces the next dividend of 0.6p per share for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 which is expected to be paid on 23 September 2016 (ex-dividend date is 1 September 2016 and record date 2 September 2016). Foreign currency The Company monitors foreign exchange exposures and considers hedging where appropriate. Foreign currency balances have been translated at the period end rates of GBP1:EUR1.206, GBP1:NOK11.228 or GBP1:INR90.316, as appropriate. Strategy and outlook ART's portfolio provides a balance of stable high yielding assets and investments that offer scope to deliver strong cashflows and high risk adjusted returns. The Company's earnings position continues to be supported by underlying asset performance. In addition, capital recycling is anticipated to continue as a small number of selected strategic divestments are planned to benefit from transactions that are accretive to returns. ART is committed to its disciplined strategy and investment principles which focus on opportunities that can deliver high risk-adjusted total returns, while seeking to manage risk through a combination of operational controls, diversification and preferred capital positions. We remain opportunistic in terms of new investments and continually evaluate possible investment targets. In situations that require a creative solution to unlock value, we remain innovative and are able to access new opportunities not only via direct assets that require asset management but also via the restructuring or recapitalisation of property investment vehicles or via share purchases. ART remains well placed to find value for its investors and to capitalise on new investment opportunities across asset backed investment and debt markets in the UK and Europe. .
One of our holdings IMPT gets coverage in the discount to NAV paragraph. Shame it doesn't mention ARTL. HTtp://
IMPT; 1 July 2016 INDUSTRIAL MULTI PROPERTY TRUST PLC (the "Company" or together with its subsidiaries the "Group") Industrial Multi Property Trust plc is today announcing that the Group's property portfolio was valued at 30 June 2016 by Cushman & Wakefield (formerly DTZ Debenham Tie Leung Limited) at GBP85.1 million. The previous valuation of the property portfolio was GBP82.1 million as at 31 March 2016. The valuation was undertaken in accordance with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Appraisal and Valuation Standards and shows the "Market Value" assuming an asset sale of each property. The valuation report also contains the following comment in relation to the result of the recent Referendum to decide whether the UK should leave or remain in the European Union: "Valuation Certainty following the EU Referendum. Following the Referendum held on 23 June 2016 concerning the UK's membership of the EU, a decision was taken to exit. We are now in a period of uncertainty in relation to many factors that impact the property investment and letting markets. Since the Referendum date it has not been possible to gauge the effect of this decision by reference to transactions in the market place. The probability of our opinion of value exactly coinciding with the price achieved, were there to be a sale, has reduced. We would, therefore, recommend that the valuation is kept under regular review and that specific market advice is obtained should you wish to effect a disposal." The Group's property portfolio will next be valued as at 30 September 2016. This announcement is not a preliminary statement of the Company's financial results and the financial information contained herein is not audited and is subject to change. The Company expects to publish its half yearly report for the six months ended 30 June 2016 by 26 August 2016.
I would imagine that Simon T will cover these in the IC today.
Interesting offer for IMPT. Helps underpin the valuation of ARTL's investments in IMPT.
Some buying today,tipped by Simon Thompson IC. Target price 105p estimates nav at 130p
IMPT update from Stockdale; Industrial Multi Property Trust (IMPT) announced its annual results this morning. The adjusted NAV per share increased by 18.5% to 261p, as at 31 December 2015, from 220p as at 31 December 2014. The occupancy level measured by the estimated rental value stood at 89.3% as 31 December 2015 compared with 86.5% as at 31 December 2014. Two light industrial and four office buildings were sold for £3.3M before sales costs, 49% above the most recent valuation. We are positive on the prospects for industrial properties and continue to recommend that investors buy the trust at current levels.
Looking at the update. Jeez they are going to morph themselves into a renewable energy trust over time. 30-40 discount seems quite appropriate in that case. Ugh. Compared to a discount management scheme or managed exit this is a stinker of a style drift.
e2, Considering I would have taken 76p on Friday last, I am pretty happy. No way would I have got out without a tip.
+1 exactly what I thought about ST, out for now
I would like to thank Simon Thompson. On the back of the announcement last week I was looking for a knock-out bid for my holding, but couldn't get one. It's taken the best part of this week to do, but I'm now out at a more than respectable price in these markets. I had rather hoped that they wouldn't make further investments, but would gradually buy back further shares to shrink the company. Friday's news was not what I was looking for, hence my decision to exit. It's been a good investment for me, and only time will tell if I got out prematurely!
No worries. ST reckons that NAV likely to rise sharply on full year results and sees the shares as a decent buy with an initial target of 105p.
Thanks tromso1....
It was a tip. Http://
flurry of buys from 12 o'clock, looks like a tip??
Overall it's a pretty small investment, assuming the other investors are funding the GDV. Here are some examples of Biomass plants from the GCP Infrastructure Fund. hxxp://
