brexitplus: HGT generally sells at quite a premium to quoted NAV its holdings, so the @ctual premium is hard to assess. It may actually be at a real discount. It all depends on how the value of each holding is assessed. I have the same problem with GROW and OCI.
tykethat: @martindjzz Thats the quandary of investing in HG capital and is the reason why I buy more on a monthly basis. In reality I have no idea if the current buying price is good bad or indifferent. What I do know is that HG would be one of the last investments that I would sell.
games: Anyone any idea what is driving the price here
makinbuks: If you watch the Fundsmith Q & A session following their AGM on U tube, Terry Smith illustrates this point with a very good chart. He simply illustrates the rating of some of his best investments several years ago compared to stocks with more of a value rating and proves what is obvious if you think about it, that quality has a price but also delivers
rambutan2: SKY, for as long as I can remember you've said that HGT is fully/overvalued. But the real opportunity cost has surely been not to hold it. Sometimes it's worth paying up for quality, leaving it be and letting it compound. My stakes in HGT and HVPE are up multiples from when I bought them and continue to outperform. Now, I certainly wouldn't have advocated holding JPEL (in its various different guises) for the long term, because the managers, right from the early days have disappointed. Currently yes there is a potential discount trade there, but how much of that nav is actually realisable at the marked price. Some of that portfolio is looking rather aged to me. No where to hide once deep into liquidation mode. The OZ fund that sold out recently is a sector specialist, and knows its stuff. So I wonder why is did sell. Interestingly, it has held onto its position in HGT.
skyship: ItO - its all about opportunity cost. HGT fully valued; JPEL grossly under-valued. So an opportunity to trade the anomaly; exactly as I did with NBPE this past month! I admit it is only for those with a more activist nature; but it is those who tend to outperform... GLA
its the oxman: Guess if you look at position today a good short term trading case can be made for jpel but look at their share price performance over the last three years v hgt and you can see why hgt still remains attractive in many investors eyes.
chrysalis99: It's an interesting looking share price chart! Still waiting for the market pull back before dipping my toe here. Been waiting a while!
tykethat: As usual when my monthly buy order goes in the price goes up! HGT are a genuine high quality outfit whose long term record is very good.
lasata: Is this bullish news for HTG? NS Number : 4973A HgCapital Trust PLC 29 September 2020 Hg, the Manager of HgCapital Trust plc ("HGT"), today announces an investment in Hyperion Insurance Group Limited ("Hyperion"), the international insurance intermediary. The full terms of the transaction are not disclosed. HgCapital Trust plc will invest approximately GBP33.1 million in Hyperion, with other institutional clients of Hg investing alongside HGT through the Hg Saturn 2 Fund. HGT, whose shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange, gives private and institutional investors the opportunity to participate in all Hg's investments. Note that these figures only relate to HGT's share of Hg's overall investment in Hyperion. HGT's liquid resources available for future deployment (including all announced transactions and the interim dividend payable in October 2020) are estimated to be GBP278 million (24% of the 31 August 2020 pro-forma NAV of GBP1.16 billion, including the increase in equity via tap equity issues over the third quarter of 2020). The investment will reduce HGT's outstanding commitments to invest in Hg transactions to approximately GBP759 million. Hg invests in Hyperion in a transaction valued at US$5 billion Transaction and debt raise will provide up to $1.5bn to accelerate strategic growth and Hyperion's focus on technology and data London, UK. 29(th) September, 2020 - Hg, a leading European investor in software and tech-enabled services businesses, today announces that it will make a significant long-term equity investment in Hyperion Insurance Group Limited ("Hyperion"), the international insurance intermediary. The transaction values the business at an enterprise value of around US$5 billion. In conjunction with an additional debt raise and existing resources, the investment will provide Hyperion with up to $1.5bn to accelerate its growth with both selective acquisitions and investments in data and technology. Hg will join Hyperion as an aligned, long-term, growth partner alongside General Atlantic, which invested in Hyperion in 2013, and CDPQ, which invested in Hyperion in 2018. Both General Atlantic and CDPQ remain committed to being partners of Hyperion alongside Hg. The Hyperion management team and employees will remain the largest shareholder group in the company, with more than 1,000 individuals now owning shares. The transaction establishes a sustainable, long-term capital model with core employee ownership supported by collaborative investment partners, enabling Hyperion to build out Howden as a leading international challenger broker and DUAL as an international specialist MGA. The full terms of the transaction are not disclosed and closing is subject to obtaining relevant regulatory approvals. Founded in 1994 and headquartered in London, Hyperion is a leading international insurance distribution group. Through its core activities of retail, speciality & reinsurance broking and through DUAL, one of the world's leading international MGAs, it facilitates the provision of B2B insurance across a wide geographic footprint. The Group operates across 200+ global offices in 40 countries and employs c.6,000 people to manage c. $9.0 billion of Gross Written Premium ("GWP") on behalf of its clients. It is the 5(th) largest employee-owned business in the UK and has a differentiated position as a leading international insurance intermediary. The investment continues Hg's focus on insurance distribution and insuretech. Hyperion will represent Hg's sixth investment in the wider sector over the last 5 years - with these businesses together totalling over $1 billion of invested client capital. Hyperion's broking arm, Howden, recently announced it had reached agreement to acquire A-Plan Group from Hg. Hg helped to drive a focus on embedding data and technology in A-Plan Group's best-in-class service model over its investment period. This experience in technology will also benefit Hyperion X, the Group's digital, data and analytics business. David Howden, Chief Executive Officer of Hyperion, said: "I am thrilled to welcome Hg as a long-term partner. During our conversations on A-Plan Group it was clear that Hg and Hyperion share an understanding of what building a business to last means for employees and clients. This, the quality of the Hg team, their support for our core employee ownership and our culture of empowerment, and the desire of the Hg partners to contribute to our digital and data strategy, makes them an excellent partner to join General Atlantic and CDPQ as we continue our journey." Andrew Land, Partner at Hg, said: "It is a privilege for Hg to back David and his fantastic team through this investment in Hyperion. The company is a unique and special business, driven by its outstanding culture and quality of talent, and it has a significant growth opportunity across the global insurance sector in the coming years. We got to know David during the recent sale by Hg of A-Plan Group to Hyperion, and it became clear that our long-term investment approach and specialism in technology were a great match for him and his team. In addition to providing capital, Hg's deep knowledge of software and data will help Hyperion stay at the forefront of technology adoption across the insurance sector." Nic Humphries, Senior Partner at Hg, said: "This long-term investment in Hyperion reflects Hg Saturn's strategy of backing entrepreneur-led growth businesses in software and tech-enabled services that are sector champions. In Saturn's recent investments in Visma, P&I, Argus Media, Sovos and now Hyperion, we developed a trusted relationship with the founder or CEO over a long period, enabling us to offer them the investment structure they needed to meet their long-term plans. David and his team have built one of the global leaders in insurance distribution and we are excited in supporting them for many years to come." Dominic Collins, Chairman of Hyperion, said: "I am delighted that Hg have chosen to become a partner alongside General Atlantic and CDPQ. It is a privilege to work with three partners who embrace our core ambition to build a sustainable and successful business, and who will help us to deliver on our strategy over the coming years at this very exciting time in the industry. The Hg team bring not only significant capital, but also considerable expertise and I look forward to welcoming them to the Board."
