Seems to have been ticking up nicely recently. Either a reevaluation of their investments and/or has anyone had a look at their board of directors (ages 61,71,69,61,54 and 54)? They are all pretty old and it may well be that the only realistic way forward might be for it to be absorbed - ie taken over - by another fund wanting a decent unquoted investment portfolio. They also have a 13.4% holding in sportingindex.com so what with all the brooha re Betfair this might have given it some impetus. Also holdings in alternative energy companies,and also heavily into healthcare. I picked this stock at random - I wont tell you how!!! - for my current year ISA and it's the best performer!!!!!

Also Blackstone reportedly taking a look at portfolio company Pulse. The Ian Armitage webcast on the recent interims is well worth a watch for anyone who missed it... http://www.hgcapitaltrust.com/

Seems like a good disposal today - got some in an ISA and they seem to be pretty astute atpicking good investments

They have a very good record, so hoping this will continue going forwards. I took up some more shares in their fundraising. On a five year basis I expect they will perform well.

We've got some in ISAs. The share price hasn't gone anywhere for a couple of years but, if you're an optimist, now might be the time for their shareholdings to make some progress. I've got some risky shares - I think that this is a balancing safer investment.

Is anyone still here? I was thinking this might be a good time to invest but am a little worried by euro exposure. Also the new purchase seems on a dramatic scale yet has had very little impact on the price, except negative, assuming it has been trailed for the last couple of weeks.

This week's Investors Chronicle carries a positive writeup on HG Capital, and rates it a buy. Cannot download article because you have to pay for it, but IC's bull and bear points for HGT are as follows. BULL POINTS ■ Cash to invest ■ Concentrated portfolio ■ 2010 could provide more exits ■ Track record BEAR POINTS ■ Not that geared to recovery ■ Exposure to Euro

Fair points, but there is (I reckon.....) more to renewable energy than merely windfarms. Note that existing shareholders will be granted a bonus issue of subscription shares if the fund raising goes ahead. Which it almost certainly will, HG Capital is often named as the best of the bunch of PEITs., not just by jobsworth journalists, but those in the know.

"windfarms, which I think (as a complete layman) will turn out to be a waste of money over the longer term." These sell electricity generated at a premium to that generated by conventional power stations. The number of wind farms is growing - that would only be true if they are profitable. HGT will do their due diligence before investing - they know what they are doing.

As a a relative new investor in HGT am interested in what more seasoned HGT followers make of proposed capital raising. HGT has plenty of surplus cash, and it sounds like the shares are not going to be sold at a discount to current price or NAV. Was attracted to HGT by its past investment record, but am rather concerned about its recent enthusiasm for renewable energy projects, such as windfarms, which I fear (as a complete layman) will turn out to be a waste of money over the longer term.

Yes, I've bought some today. HG Capital Trust have to be applauded for having over 50% of their assets in cash at this point in the cycle.

Yes, and quite a few around like this. The trusts I mentioned in my February 2007 post - I am topping up on. RIT in particular seems to be riding this storm better than most, and may end up in the FOOTSIE 100 as a result. Mad times ...

Sure does. Buy and forget, give it 10 years or so.......... not racy enough for most on these boards. Bit like Pantheon Int'l and RIT Capital, Ho Hum I say............ happy to have this threesome under the belt.

Yes, a good read, no worries on this one. Apart from the "Buy" tip in The Times some months ago, it seems to be under the radar a little compared with other private equity IT's, which should suit holders. Long term is the key.
