|So, it's "Good bye from me and good bye from him!"|
|So the votes are in and this one is ready to roll over.
Interestingly, quite a lot (~38%) voted to roll over into BNKR rather than HINT.
|Reconstruction proposals, circular going to shareholders:
|...and back down again.|
I was wondering what to do about these recently. Thinking it didn't really seem to be going anywhere. I originally bought in to go alongside Bankers (BNKR) as it was cheaper at the time and had a somewhat higher yield. But the yield has remained flat and Bankers seems to perform better. I was thinking of selling and putting the proceeds into BNKR.
They will be offering an option to roll over into Bankers as an alternative to HINT.
I will have to do some more thinking. ;-)|
|Going to merge with HINT by the look of it because of the large discount and small size.
Well, that announcement narrowed the discount a bit.|
|At about a 14% discount at present. NAV ~ 395p as against current shareprice of under 340p.
|And is again.|
|This has certainly taken a hammering.|
|Latest factsheet here:
|NAV now at about 425p.|
|This has been looking a lot more perky of late!|
|NAV currently about 400p, so discount now around 12.5%|
|Current NAV about 410p now
|Current NAV about 398p
|2013 YE Results:
Hasn't really gone anywhere since the previous YE, has it? Same div as last year, 10p, paid partially out of reserves (as last year) as eps 9.35p, last year was 9.57p.|
|Change of portfolio manager! Brian O'Neill to retire, to be replaced by Wouter Volckaert from 31 January 2014.
|Prices are getting volatile!|
I'd missed that they were changing the mandate. I have no problem with a bit more diversity in the mix.|
|Mandate change went through. Now will move to single index MSCI Worldwide (?) bench mark and therefore hold less UK equities and more US and emerging markets.|
|Well I bought in a while ago. Of course it has risen - like everything else! It will be interesting to see how it compares to Bankers (BNKR) in the longer term.|
|I had my eye on bankers as well but the discount here was too great to resist.
Currently discount at 10% for a basket of global blue chip companies. Top 10 holding below. Also like the management charge of 0.87% pa. Lower than most ITs.

|I'm thinking of buying in. I already hold Bankers IT (BNKR). Bankers is currently reported as having a smaller discount than usual, hence my interest in HGL, which also now has a higher yield.|
|Anyone else follow this IT?
Global exposure. 3% yield. Good discount to Nav
