..i guess because it's not the board's job to manage the portfolio, and yesterday there was still a chance of a better outcome.

I dunno, but the warnings were there for 2 years, why didn't the board force him to sell down the holding, it's shocking to come to this.

@CHC15 - it has been dropping more than 11 or 12% at times which also accounts for some loss of confidence in Darwall - wonder if he was one of the sellers within Wirecards 67% fall today? - doubtful after he was married to it for so long.

can't understand why he apologised to shareholders for having so much in Wirecard ?10% or just over without cutting the position...hubris in retrospect

Total muppet this Alexander is! Warning signs been there for ages, still had large holding. If it made up 10%, has today's drop accounted for it going to 0 value?

48-hours for brazen Braun to bail-out Wirecard Wirecard the Germany payments outfit and DAX 30 constituent was supposed to have released its twice previously delayed 2019 results today. Instead the company issued a statement saying that the Annual Report would need to be further delayed as their auditor E&Y could not verify whether previously reported cash balances of €1.9bn could be verified. What has amazed us is how the Wirecard share price has been so impervious for so long to cumulative substantiated accusations of wrong-doing. Even today Wirecard’s long standing CEO Marcus Braun has brazenly tried to portray the company as a victim of fraud and instead tried to focus investors on apparently strong reported revenue growth. However, if the company’s cash balances are non-existent then logic would also suggest that current trading is equally fictious. During our Q1 conference call Wirecard Short we previously described the company as “having more red flags than you would see at a communist rally”. This morning the stock was our biggest short position. The share price of Germany’s previously most valuable financial company just halved. Moreover, with Wirecard’s borrowings dependent on an audited 2019 Annual Report being released by June 19th the company may now be declared insolvent by the weekend. We previously noted In Defence of Short Selling our unique motivation to “unmask fraudulent management and expose poor business models”. We observed the collapse of Ponzi scheme NMC Hospitals earlier this year, which was another top short position for the fund, and also questioned why the German financial regulator had previously leaped to the defence of Wirecard as somehow in the German national interest. We suggested that far from being the “pantomime hedge fund villains of Mayfair…if there are no short-sellers to play the role of market vigilante, we would inevitably have a more dishonest stock market. In the absence of shorts, capital would be allocated less efficiently and over the long-term economic growth would suffer”. Acta est fabula plaudite!

This trust looks like it has had a good performance long-term. I see the manager is going with them to Devon Equity Management Limited. Does anyone see any obvious changes to the way this trust will be managed?

Quite an unusual way forward. It's surprising that Darwall is able to do this deal, but I guess he is giving up competing in open ended funds for 2 years, to get the investment trust. An interesting story.

hxxps://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/jupiters-darwall-hit-as-wirecard-tumbles-on-ft-report/a1197149 How's that for growing pains? Wirecard reached 17% of JEO's NAV and now that holding 25% down yesterday alone. I thought that holding was too big and too good to be true forever it's what encouraged me to reduce my JEO months ago. It's what I call managing portfolio risk. Mr Darwall probably still carries a healthy profit on Wirecard but maybe he could spare a thought for more recently invested JEO shareholders?

Wire Card is at 12% of NAV in latest fact sheet, and top 10 = 72%. Investor, you'd better like concentrated funds. Meanwhile WireCard's price has been above the consensus target price for a few weeks now.

NAV is nicely trending upwards and yet share price is still in freefall. The discount is now -3.55%Would be good to see some uptrend in this trust, it's been downhill since I bought in! Bad timing on my part..
