Sadly, I have had to part with a big chunk of my FCIT holdings today for house buying related expenses. Still, it was relatively pleasing to do so at an all time high.

Bit dead here, but have noticed some new radio adverts about fcit, so they are doing more to promote this. The discount needs to narrow, mkt was up a lot yesterday and this barely moved, odd.

Reading the latest interim:
"Valuations in the private equity part of the portfolio have so far held up well and delivered a return of 4.7% over the first six months, however we expect these to come under pressure as the year progresses to reflect what has happened in the public markets. We have continued to make selective investments in this area and agreed a new programme of exposure in leading growth and venture managers which will be managed by Pantheon. These commitments are long-term in nature and our experience in terms of unlisted private equity exposure has, historically, been positive."

So, in essence we are going to fish more and more in Private Equity waters, however incrementally. Good timing to do so now as the PE sector seem to have been oversold.

I, myself, have just taken a position in NBPE to complement my holdings in CTPE (used to be BPET or FPEO in the old days when F&C was independent). Riskier than FCIT of course, but better long term returns indeed.

The discount has closed a bit last month: 9.2% average in July and 7.0% in August (latest fact sheet).

Now that the FTSE 100 trackers will have to buy FCIT, it might even close a bit more.
It is already trading a lot, the offer/spread is very small so unlikely to improve much on that side of things.

Yep, the perfect F&C thread complete with the neverending comments on "You'd be better off with a tracker"... which by definition cannot beat its index. :)

They bleat on about fees even though the fees in an IT are already reflected in the share price anyway.

No, in fact, we do not own any Twitter according to the latest list of holdings given on April 8th.


We do (did?) have some NETFLIX INC and MOSCOW EXCHANGE MICEX RTS PJ at that time though.

An article on those ITs that have been around forever.
FCIT is just below average at 18/35.

The ranking is not fully relevant though as some of them are specialists, thus riskier, or less liquid, than the global behemoths. Others have fully morphed into something else and should be considered "young", such as Witan Pacific (that used to be managed by F&C) that is now Baillie Gifford China Growth.


The article is focusing on the age of the listed trusts.

Many years ago I used to hold 3 Investment Trusts under their regular saving schemes - FCIT, BGSC & SMT. FCIT was by far the least successful of the 3!

Nowadays, I just trade FCIT occasionally and like Vacendak use the Trust as pedestrian ballast. I sometimes miss the highs but usually manage to slice reasonably consistent profits. One of the virtues of FCIT is the miniscule spread.

For what it's worth I no longer hold the other 2 shares but for different reasons.

That is the reason: Large company, a LOT of holdings, so totally insensitive to anything in particular, Amazon, Tesla, Unilever, whatever, everything is smoothed. Obviously, this is also the whole point of FCIT.

There is not much to comment about with regards to strategy either (they collect them all, value, growth, income, etc.) beyond the very slight shift towards private equity a few years back. Then again, we are still talking of "fund of PE funds", so nothing too adventurous and no big direct holding.

The only comment for this whale is whether or not it beats its index over 5 or 10Y, thus is no longer the closet tracker it used to be before Paul Niven took over.

I use F&C as stabilising ballast in my portfolio.

Good news: The NAV is now hovering above what it was before the plague.

Before then FCIT was running at a premium, now it is at an 8.6% discount and the trust is buying back instead of releasing shares. Thus the share price not looking so great.
