agree, looks as though he is intent on reducing the numbers of holdings and cutting out duplications, where possible, should make the fund easier to manage in the end..

I quite like Pohl's approach on avoiding technological obsolescence. Share price taken a bit of a hit today, but I'm optimistic on the revised approach. I will stick with it.

Agreed. He's done a good job. He should have bowed out honourably when he had the chance really. Not the way to retire. The share price seems to respond positively to the prospect of Pohl continuing. Best point is Moore back as this trust needs his wise experience. The other NEDs are too inexperienced.

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.

Just announced - Pohl and Moore back on the Board. Mrs Sachdev voted out. Ashton and Lawman survive, but may decide to go I suspect. They need Moore as Chairman.

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.

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.

Interestingly, the share price seems to perk up a little with the prospect of Pohl winning.

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. https://www.investegate.co.uk/athelney-trust-plc--aty-/rns/board-letter-to-shareholders/201903200700114129T/

So if Mr lawman was not truly independent as a chairman,how is he truly independent as a director.

agree with last three posts and am minded to vote with Pohl and Moore for my few shares but concerned that Pohl, who has an excellent record in Australia, outperforming rising markets and marginally underperforming falling, will be based in Brisbane, is 64, so am concerned as to how he will manage the Trust from there; would have thought Manx Telecom would have been an ideal holding for the Trust instead of or in addition to Kcom, but can't see any sign of it in the accounts, have asked for clarification as to how Pohl will manage from Australia from the company secretary: looks as though the new Directors are charging up all sorts of travel and consultancy fees which this tiny trust just can't afford so an orderly wind-up is the best solution, failing which Pohl and Moore IMHO. Moore is a very experienced expert in investment and Investment Trusts, has just ?retired from 7 investment so should have the time available and above all be able to see fair play.

RB has put his personal position ahead of his duty to investors. Board out of its depth.

A very sensible letter from Dr Manny Pohl, albeit a little late. I'm comfortable that Pohl and Moore are a much better proposition for Athelney Trust. Pleased I have changed sides.

No further mention of a tender, conveniently forgotten? Previous support by vote for tender showed that many shareholders want out - very difficult to call but I guess this group will go with Pohl now. Any more muddle with Boyle and the discount could widen a lot. The strategy of "stability" and particularly "expansion", together with "Robin Boyle continuity" unfortunately just doesn't hold water - if there was demand then there wouldn't be a discount, and any potential new investors will take a look at the past year and run a mile. Should have been a wind-up and distribution at NAV when Boyle first flounced out, Athelney was dead then. Now just prolonging the agony at financial cost to the shareholders. Only other option is that Pohl can make some use of the corpse, but it is difficult see the shareholder benefit there unless the discount and spread can be cut down.

can't claim to be the pope (Infallible) and have made plenty of errors, companies going bust or negligible value, over the years so will consider any views and only filter offensive comment....

this is what bottomvest wrote recently on the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust bulletin board: "Think this share is going to get crucified in 2019. It's on a 10% premium, so you can take it to a 10% discount without any effort. The FANG stocks are now in bear territory, so there is a 50% chance they will go down 80% and and 80% chance they will go down 50%. I think this investment trust is probably heading for under a £1. " Price of SMT today has rebounded to just shy of £5. ...better filter bottomvest like everybody else has
