Liberum; Strategy update Event P2P Global Investments' strategy update presentation highlights that the manager expects to cover a dividend of at least 15p per quarter by the end of Q2 2018. The quarterly dividend will be at least 12p per share in the intervening period. The company has recently accelerated the portfolio repositioning with the sale of a portion of its US consumer exposure. The transaction represented a reduction in company's net exposure to US consumer loans of £37m (4.6% of NAV). Gross exposure decreased by £167m with a consequent reduction in leverage and hedging requirements. The portfolio sale was the main reason for the -1.0% NAV decline during October. Two-thirds of the credit assets are now at or exceeding return targets. The company intends to increase its exposure to specialist and secured assets and has £400m pipeline of new investments with existing and new partners. Secured assets are expected to be 39% by Q2 2018 vs. 25% currently.

P2P Global Investments (P2P) Numis Securities believes there could be a pick-up in P2P Global Investments’ sorry share price. The largest of the listed funds in the direct lending sub-sector, P2P lost investors’ confidence when currency hedging costs and rising delinquencies on its high US consumer exposure meant it failed to hit its annual return target of 6-8%. Earlier this year, its manager merged with Pollen Capital, the manager of its more successful and UK-focused rival Honeycomb (HONY). With the discount on the shares having widened to 22% - giving it a Z-score of 1.1% - and a strategy update expected early next month, Numis analyst Sam Murphy is cautiously optimistic, writing this week that: ‘We now see only modest downside, with the potential for the discount to narrow if returns start to pick-up or if the November strategy update provides an improved outlook. The fund is paying quarterly dividends at a rate of 12p, equivalent to 48p pa and a 6.1% yield on the current share price. We expect that over time P2P’s portfolio will look a lot more like Honeycomb IT, which is also managed by Pollen Street. ‘This raises potential for a merger in future, in our view, and it is notable that Invesco Asset Management is the largest shareholder in both funds,’ he said.

Yes the current portfolio is clearly full of junk but the new managers brought in seem to have expertise in this area and the Honeycomb trust has performed well. It's just a question of how long it will take to reposition the fund, given its size I suspect quite a long time.

So 0.14% return on the month, which is like 1.5% return per annum without buybacks. Comparable to a regular high interest savings account, but exposed to more credit risk and leverage, and paying a performance fee on top. They really need to wind this down and return funds to investors. Ideally before the next recession.

Liberum; Event NAV per share at 30 September was 1002.2p which represents an increase of 0.19% in the month of which share buybacks added 0.05%. NAV return in Q3 was 0.77% and in 2017 to date is 3.1%. Exposure to US consumer loans has reduced to 34% of NAV (June 2017: 39%). Hurricanes in the quarter impacted the US portfolio by increasing delinquencies in affected states such as Texas and Florida. The corporate debt facility has increased from £150m to £200m as the company is seeking to move away from US Dollar financing. P2P GI is also seeking to arrange a securitisation of Zopa loans which should help to reduce the cost of funding. The transaction is backed by 31,153 Zopa loans with a total outstanding balance of £209m, which represents the majority of the company's existing UK consumer loan exposure (20% of NAV at 30 September 2017) An unchanged dividend of 12p has been declared for Q3. 5.7p of this was covered by income and 6.3p is from the special distributable reserve of which 2.1p relates to share buybacks. Liberum view P2PGI's returns remain subdued (12-month NAV return of 3.7%) which has led to the discount widening to -21% in recent months. In terms of credit performance, the 6-month rolling annualised impairment rate has declined slightly in the quarter but remains high at c.4.5%. The focus will now shift to the strategy update which is due in early November as investors seek clarity on how the portfolio will change over the next 12-18 months.

So P2P global is packaging up a group of loans that us shareholders are currently receiving income from, and sells them on to other investors (whilst retaining a small portion). How does that benefit current shareholders as surely P2P now has to find other assets to invest in, and what does it mean reduces P2P costs of funding?

Liberum; P2P Global Investments (Mkt Cap £634m) Potential securitisation of Zopa loans Event Trade press reports indicate that P2P Global Investments is arranging a new securitisation backed by Zopa loans. This would be the company's second securitisation of Zopa loans following a similar transaction last year. The transaction is backed by 31,153 Zopa loans with a total outstanding balance of £209m, which represents the majority of the company's existing UK consumer loan exposure (20% of NAV at 31 August 2017). The average balance of the loans is £6,708. The weighted average age of the loans is 4.5 months and the average remaining term is 45.7 months. The average interest rate is 7.2%. According to a Moody’s report 88% of borrowers are in full time employment and the loans are mainly used to finance cars (30.8%), debt consolidation (38.0%) and home improvements (20.9%). The securitisation is called Marketplace Originated Consumer Assets 2017-1. Moody's main model assumptions are 7.0% lifetime defaults with 10% recoveries. The most senior tranche has been given a provisional rating of Aa3. P2P GI would hold at least 5% of the structure in order to comply with risk retention requirements. Liberum view Last year's transaction priced attractively with a weighted average cost of 1-month Libor +168bps and we would expect the proposed transaction will also help to reduce the company's existing cost of debt. It would also release a significant amount of capital back to the company as it continues to reposition the portfolio towards specialist assets. The shares currently trade on a 22.5% discount to NAV.

Liberum P2P Global Investments has published its Interim Results for the half year to 30 June 2017, NAV growth was 2.3% over the period; stripping out the impact of share buybacks we calculate NAV return of c.1.8%. The company bought back a total of 2.6m shares during the period at an average price 824.25p; this provided an uplift of 5.6p per share. 24p of dividends have been declared and paid during H1. The allocation to US consumer loans has reduced over the half year to 39% (December 2016: 55%). This capital has been predominantly reinvested in UK assets across real estate, consumer and SME loans. The main platforms for new origination in the quarter were Zopa (35%; UK consumer), Zorin (28%; UK real estate) and Funding Circle (20%; UK SME). In terms of credit performance, the aggregate 6-month rolling annualised impairment rate declined marginally in Q2, but remains within the 4.5%-5.0% range. Borrowing margins improved in Q2 to 245 bps (previously 260 bps); as at 30 June the gearing ratio had declined to 72% (December 2016: 82%). The increase in USD Libor has offset the reduced margins but the company's lower US exposure will reduce the US Dollar funding requirement. In line with changes require by IFRS 9, P2P Global Investments will make provisions for expected future credit losses from January 2018 onwards. It should result in a smoother NAV performance but there will be a larger one-off adjustment in the early months of the adoption of the standard. Liberum View A key development during the half year was the implementation of the strategic review of the investment management arrangements and proposals to re-orientate the portfolio away from the US consumer and towards higher quality platforms; the company has advised that this transition could take up to 18 months to achieve. Immediately preceding the announcement of the review the shares were trading at a 22.7% discount to NAV, which subsequently narrowed to c.13%. The shares are currently trading at a 16% discount to NAV, compared to a peer group average discount of 2.6% for the direct lending peer group; the current yield is 5.4%. Underlying performance has gradually improved in 2017 and the fund will need to maintain this progression in order to achieve the targeted 6-8% return level and a re-rating towards par.

This post makes no sense to me. Buy backs weren't supporting the price recently. Was the news of lower fees and change of investment manager. When you say everyone sold out around 900p who are you talking about? There's no news of mass selling of the stock that I've missed? And why would 'everyone' logically sell out in absence of new negative information anyhow. The recent share price drop last week or two is probably due to Friend Providrnt news nothing to do with buy backs.

Well, it looks like everyone, including me, sold out here while they had the chance at around 900p when the buy backs were buoying up the price. The price has now drifted back to below 850 as the buy backs start losing their influence and the monthly Nav increase remains anaemic. At what price do these become interesting again? I'm thinking at around 825 in the absence of any further news. Below 800 might prompt something decisive like a wind down and return of value to investors. On the other hand, an improvement in returns would probably see the drift downwards reversed.

in the comments section of that link: "...5% of any increase in net asset value over 5% from next year. There is currently no hurdle on the performance fee... That is quite a rake-off, at a time when conventional investment trusts (including Mark Barnett's Perpetual I&G) are abandoning or curbing performance fees. The formula is closer to the hedge fund's exorbitant 'two and twenty'. If Scottish Mortgage can run an activist, research-heavy international fund on an OCR of under 0.4%, why cannot a debt investor?"

Right you are. It was Anley who sold out. Decent news all round though. It looks like there is a more considered approach to which markets to enter and focus on than previously which also has to be a good thing in the long run. I look forward to a reduction in discount and a gradual increase in distributions.

Good news, I guess the share price has reflected this already. 15% performance is still on the high side for a fixed income fund but much better now it has a hurdle (though 5% hurdle when the target is 7.5% is a bit harsh). Our interests are aligned. Shame nothing more concrete on managing the discount to NAV. I'm not sure why a quarterly buyback at say 10% discount, of a minimum amount of shares wasn't announced. Would have immediately raised the share price with minimal cost. Though if dividends move up to 60p per year, I imagine the share price will rise anyway. I think it was Anley that sold up, I never exited, for me I'm holding these shares long term for income in the kids names. The discount to NAV, whilst annoying since I bought at IPO, is not so important for me currently, though it would be if it stayed like this permanently.

From today's announcements: 'As set forth in the Board's announcement, the two firms have agreed in principle to merge their operations in a share for share exchange, with Pollen Street becoming the majority shareholder of the combined investment management group' 'Fees are to be revised to reflect a more performance based structure, comprising a management fee of 1 per cent of net assets, and a performance fee of 15 per cent of any increase in net asset value (taking account of distributions and certain other adjustments) subject to a hurdle of 5 per cent with full catch up (intended to commence 1 January 2018).' AROON001, it looks like we have got 2 out of 3 of your requests. I think that you were unfortunate with your exit timing but are you thinking of jumping back on board?

Perhaps. If the investment manager just sits there whilst the share price falls 30% and it takes major shareholders to make them think twice about their strategy, it would be far more preferable to replace the investment manager. Focusing more on the UK at a time when UK economy is slowing doesn't seem aparticularly astute call. Other things like focusing on more secure debt - why haven't they been doing that before if it was such a good idea and it reads like complete nonsense that secured credit would have higher yields than unsecured. id prefer: 1) change of manager 2) adjustment of fees to include a hurdle rate 3) quarterly buy back of shares at 5% below NAV to anyone who wants to exit.
