Thanks - it turned out well in the end. 10% per annum is my hurdle. It was looking a very poor investment at one stage, so pleased with the end outcome. Lots of opportunities out there at the moment, but possibly more soon. I suspect there may be some nervousness ahead of the early May interest rate decisions as the Fed and BoE will need to take quite a bit of action. Maybe a 0.5% increase on the way, given no decisions in April?

Good luck topinvest with your future investments, You have obviously been here a very long time. There is obviously a rotation into more defensive positions taking place at the moment. I also hold treasury stocks, bonds and the likes of infrastructure funds etc. However, trying to pick up a value defensive with discount to NAV is now so difficult. Look at most of the decent infrastructure funds, they all to seem to be over 10% premium to NAV, which I am not willing to pay. I have been growing my position here at NAV discount over the past 3 months but note that today like you say, due to demand, the stock now crossed slightly to a premium to share price this morning, but still offers around 3.6% div. To be honest, if I had held this defensive stock position for 10 years like you, and doubled my money, I would personally be fairly pleased with around 10% per annum. However, we all have our different perceptions on good and poor performance. Anyway best of luck, let us know if you find a decent place for your re-investment. TT

Well done on the ER spin-out. One of the few I suspect!

Realising CGT allowance early in the tax year @topvest ;) Agree with your points, not a holder currently. Tho did do very well on the ER R spin-out, thanks to averaging and selling out before the final suspension. Feels like ancient history now.

I have sold out today. Ecofin certainly hasn't been a great ride over more than a decade or so, with the EF Realisation spin-out and poor performance. Recently things have been much better, but I tend to think that's probably more down to a sector shift. They are now on a premium and have a low yield, so a 2+bagger seemed a good opportunity to exit a low conviction holding. Good luck to those remaining.

I think that sensible things are going down as they are viewed as defensive bond proxies which the wise don’t want to hold if interest rates go up. Instead cyclical reopening fancies are going up. It’s just Mr Market. I don’t hold at the moment. I did when this was at a discount and sold when it closed. If the share price weakens much more than the NAV it will look interesting again.

Nav was 199.45 on the 11th January , it now stands at 180.24 as of the 19th nav update. The share price has followed down it by similar amounts, they are still issuing more equity, what the hell going on with them, the £ has gone up from 136p to 140p over the same time scale , so that does not explain the large drop in nav?

A few other companies in EGL’s universe have communicated on their dividends andweareadjustingourownforecaststoo. There is a high probability of a delay for some dividends –given several companies have announced the postponement of their AGMs and this will likely trigger the postponement of dividend payments too –but we believe a majority of portfolio holdings will still be able to pay their dividends before the end of September (EGL’s fiscal year-end). The risk to dividends in EGL’s portfolio should be amongst companies highly exposed to industrial contracts (e.g., environmental service groups) and for transportation infrastructure groups (roads and airports). For these names, we have reduced our base-case assumptions for dividends for this year and have trimmed (Suez) or exited (Veolia) some positions. While utilities –especially regulated businesses butalso many diversified integrated ones–should not need to alter their dividend policies as cash flow/debt service payments and dividend cover ratios are generally comfortable, there is nonetheless sufficient uncertainty in the business outlook for caution. Also, as we are seeing in France, political intervention to suppress dividends in certain sectors/companies, including where the state is a shareholder, is becoming a factor: EDF’s and Engie’s dividends for 2019 (due to be paid in 2020) have just been cancelled. Taking all of this in to account, we expect to implement some further changes to the portfolio to preserve the level of dividend income receipts this year.

Thanks to the comments here I sold this at 1.85ish a few days back and looking to get back in again now that the discount has widened. Sadly it was less than 2% of the remaining portfolio that I mainly held on to!

Returning to buy territory? Is at least moderately defensive.

Bit of both. In a similar vein I am looking at UEM as a possibility.

Amazing how the discount has steadily closed over recent months Have you gone into other similar infrastructure trusts, or branched into other sectors

Well done - I was out far too soon, having held it variously forever. Have to give them credit where it's due, having been poor performers for years and years, they've massively turned it around now.

I'm out at 186.95p. It's been on a great run. Decided to bank profit and move elsewhere offering wider discount. Will be happy to re-enter if suitable opportunity arises in future. GLTA who remain.

Have top sliced now that the discount has narrowed so much and yield now down to 3.5%. I hope I've left something on the table as regards my remaining holding.
