mw8156: Robin Boyle and John Girdlestone have apparently bowed out; seems that the NAV advanced from 50p to 245p in their period of tenure from July 1994 and in addition 80p of dividends have been paid with a rising dividend each year, so a more than satisfactory performance for those who've held from the start for which shareholders should be indebted.
rooky4: It was a few days ago. I assumed that the price would drop by the dividend when xd, although I realise the market doesn't have to be rational. Happy to be out of it at a reasonable price anyway.
mw8156: Rooky 4 are they not xd today so you get the divi as well if you sold today?
rooky4: The last issued NAV was 235.9p (effectively includes the next dividend). Recently, 235p has been on offer. Presumably this reflects the Pohl camp buying in, and won't be repeated, so probably the discount will widen in the medium term. I couldn't see a good reason to stay, so sold out.
paulfred1: Pohl is clearly damaging this company and can't run the fund from Australia. Gresham House has a great reputation. The current board gets my vote.
topvest: Yes, what a mess. To be honest Boyle has made a pigs ear of all of this. Reminds me to retire with dignity in a few years, rather than having to be kicked out of the door kicking and screaming! Pohl is not going to back down and will win eventually in my view. He's not a loser, and will get what he wanted in the first place which is a UK investment vehicle. No doubt he will buy some more shares or something to get himself over the line! So the new strategy of getting Gresham House involved seems another dead-end to me. I'm inclined to change sides and switch to Pohl this time as Boyle's time has run-out as far as I'm concerned. Boyle's strategy just seems pointless. You either continue or get cash back at NAV. A half-in half-out Boyle / Gresham strategy doesn't seem right. At least the dividend is still good, for now! Need to read the documents more clearly, and that's another thing...the documents they have been putting out are less than clear. Received a garbage letter from the Company Secretary today that is not needed for a UK listed investment trust & could have been posted with the annual report to save money. No stamp addressed envelope either. I'm losing my patience! On a positive note, Pohl seems to be making relatively good adjustments to the portfolio and is compensating for Boyle's weak spot of investing in companies exposed on the wrong side of structural change and technological obsolescence. I will post again when I have more than 5 minutes to read the annual report.
mw8156: messy - agreed indeed! What I wonder is this all costing in a small company like aty? David Lawman might be the man in the photo on the Daniel Stewart website but can't find any fit for Paul Coffin so without much further information would be inclined to vote against their election to the Board. Trouble is they may be large holders and in addition to the holdings of Robin Boyle might be able to force their way on to the Board and depose the existing Directors despite the views of small shareholders.
topvest: Disappointing news today. This is not the right way to finish for Robin Boyle, and we will all miss his interesting commentaries. For the first time I have checked-up on the Global Masters Fund and Manny Pohl. Looks reasonably safe and they have 50% of their portfolio in Berkshire Hathaway. I do wonder whether Manny has been itching to run the UK portfolio himself. It will be interesting to see if the Global Masters Fund sell their UK portfolio to ATY now or increase their stake by taking out Robin's shares.
speedsgh: HTTPS:// This is my 741st Tweet and my last, since I have resigned as managing director of Athelney Trust after 24 years in charge. My plans for the smooth running of ATY were over-turned by the two non-executive directors. Not right. Good-bye.
speedsgh: Directorate Change - HTTPS:// It is with regret that the Board announces the sudden resignation of Robin Boyle as Managing Director and Fund Manager with immediate effect, his resignation was as a result of the non-executive Directors overruling his request to bring about major changes in the management of the Company. Dr. Emmanuel (Manny) Pohl, current Athelney Trust Chairman, will take over both roles. Simon Moore will take over the role of Chairman. Robin remains a significant shareholder. Manny is Chairman and CEO of E C Pohl & Co ("ECP"), an investment management company and a majority shareholder in Global Masters Limited, which in turn has been a major shareholder in Athelney Trust for many years. Manny has a long investment track record running highly rated listed investment companies in Australia (note 1) and has spent the last 12 months running a UK equity portfolio in parallel with Athelney Trust that has performed extremely well. We thus expect a smooth transfer of management of Athelney Trust and a continued focus on both capital growth and dividend growth from UK equities. We would like to thank Robin for twenty-four years of managing Athelney Trust, over which period shareholders have been amply rewarded in both dividend income and capital growth (note 2). His interesting, insightful and witty contributions to Athelney Trust publications will be much missed.
