Intention to issue equity - C share capital raise

Legal Entity Identifier: 549300D8JHZTH6GI8F97

JPMorgan Global Core Real Assets Limited (the 'Company' or 'JARA') is pleased to announce its intention to launch an issue of convertible C shares with a premium listing on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange, by way of an initial placing, offer for subscription and intermediaries offer forming part of a new 12 month share issuance programme (the 'Issue'). The newly issued C shares will have an issue price of GBPGBP1.00 per C share. The Company has a minimum target raise of GBP80m, with further capacity above this. The Prospectus will shortly be made available on the Company's website and at the National Storage Mechanism at

On 24 September 2020, the Company announced that 99.5% of its initial IPO proceeds had been invested and that it would look to raise further equity as client demand and market opportunities present themselves. Following discussions with both existing and prospective investors, the Manager and the Board have determined that broad demand exists for the Company to grow in size. The Manager also continues to see attractive opportunities in real assets across the JPMorgan Asset Management Alternatives Platform. Once fully invested, the Company intends to provide investors with stable income and capital appreciation through exposure to a globally diversified portfolio of Core Real Assets in accordance with the Company's investment policy.

The intended raise will help JARA achieve greater scale, liquidity and result in a reduction in overall fee levels; progressing the goal of making JARA one of the most cost effective access points to a unique private pool of income producing Core Real Assets.

Key Highlights

-- JARA will provide diversified access to over 700 underlying private real assets through private funds and managed accounts managed by JPMAM's USD141* billion Global Alternatives platform.

-- Within 12 months of its IPO, JARA's has achieved its deployment target of investing substantially all of its IPO proceeds and its first year dividend target of 2%-3%. Taking into account the capital raised post-IPO, JARA is now c.74% invested.

-- JARA's portfolio is targeted at providing exposure to "Core" Real Assets, meaning those real assets that JPMAM considers offer reliable, highly forecastable, long-term cash flows. JARA will have exposure to various real assets including the following asset classes: Global Infrastructure Assets, Global Real Estate Assets, Global Transportation Assets and Listed Real Assets.

-- The Manager sees an opportunity to diversify JARA's portfolio further by including U.S. Real Estate Mezzanine Debt within JARA's existing Global Real Estate allocation. This strategy targets a 6-8% p.a. total return, all of which will come from income, thereby being accretive to JARA's yield. This strategy offers JARA access to high quality income at a more senior position within the real estate capital structure than JARA currently has exposure to.

-- JARA is aiming to provide investors with a long-term target total NAV return of 7 - 9% per annum (net of fees), on the basis of the initial issue price at which the Ordinary Shares were issued and once JARA is fully invested (the 'Target Total Return')([1]) .

-- The Target Total Return is inclusive of a dividend target of 4 - 6% per annum (payable quarterly) once JARA is fully invested (the 'Target Dividend')([1]) .

[1] Neither the Target Total Return nor the Target Dividend should be taken as an indication of the Company's expected future performance or results over any period and neither of these targets constitutes a profit forecast. These are targets only and there is no guarantee that they can or will be achieved. The Target Total Return should not be seen as an indication of the Company's expected or actual return and the Target Dividend should not be seen as an indication of the Company's expected or actual dividend yield. Accordingly, prospective investors should not place any reliance on the target figures stated above in deciding whether to invest in the Company. The actual net dividend yield and total NAV return generated by the Company in pursuing the Investment Policy depends on a wide range of factors including, but not limited to, the general economic and market conditions, fluctuations in currency exchange rates and the performance of the JPMAM Products in which the Company invests and will continue to invest and other risks that will be described more fully in the Prospectus once published. The payment of dividends will at all times be subject to compliance with the solvency test prescribed by the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own Target Market Assessment in respect of the shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
