These have done amazingly well for me (up 130% since i first invested),and i have auto reinvestment of dividends. quepassa mentioned HRI,but i like my investment trusts to pay a dividend,which i auto reinvest and have done over the last 6 years with the trusts in my portfolio. I aim for round about 4%,and have about 20 trusts now. I do have some ASCI as well. A couple pay lower than this,but several are paying more. I just want to be able to buy and hold and not have to worry about the cyclical ups and downs which hit the markets from time to time.With decent dividend paying stocks,if there is a pull back at any time,at least you have the benefit of having mor of them over a period of time. Over the last 6 years,i have probably just about trebled the value of the trusts i hold,and the number of shres increased by about 30%,without actually having to actively go out and buy any more.

Potential Capital Raise As previously announced by the Board on 13 January 2017, the Directors have been considering the options for a refinancing of the Zero Dividend Preference shares, which are due for final repayment on 8 January 2018. In light of the Company’s strong and sustained track record as well as the availability of attractive investments, the Board believes that it is an appropriate point to seek to increase the size of the Company and raise additional capital. Accordingly, the Company is proposing an issue of C shares through a placing, intermediaries offer and offer for subscription of C Shares as well as an issue and placing of new ZDP Shares in connection with recommended proposals for the reconstruction and winding-up of Existing ZDP Co (collectively, the “Issue”). The Company is seeking to raise up to £75 million new Ordinary shares, subject to market conditions and there being sufficient investor appetite for the C shares on agreeable terms. In addition, the Company will seek to issue c. £30 million of new ZDPs, on a term of 7.3 years with a gross redemption yield of 4.00 per cent. with an initial target cover ratio of circa 3.7x, subject to the level of rollover elections received. The existing investment objective and policy will remain unchanged and the Company intends to use the Net Proceeds of the Issue to add to existing holdings and to make new investments. The Company will provide a further update in due course, as appropriate.

But don't forget to look at Herald Investment Trust which is at a vast discount and which has been recently performing fantastically. 800p to 1150p in a year and still set to run further Major scope for further tightening of gaping discount. also highly likely to enter FTSE250 soon.

SDV at 2% discount to NAV and ASCI at 20%, makes a compelling case for a swap.

Winterfloods; Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income is differentiated within the UK Small Cap sector by its fixed income portfolio, which broadly offsets its c.10% gearing and boosts income. The fund also has a relatively focused portfolio of 45 stocks, although it remains diversified with less than 30% invested in the top 10 holdings. Other than its stable-mate, Dunedin Smaller Companies (79%), the fund’s highest portfolio overlap with peers is just 16%. With the impending merger of Aberdeen AM and Standard Life it is worth noting that Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income and Standard Life UK Smaller Companies* are differentiated by their investment approaches, with the latter focusing on growth, and just a 10% overlap between the two portfolios. · Focus on quality businesses has delivered outperformance – The managers, Jonathan Allison and Ian Hewett, aim to invest in companies with strong management teams and balance sheets that are generating high returns on capital. The fund’s NAV has outperformed its benchmark, the FTSE Small Cap ex Investment Companies Index, over the last one, three and five years and has also outperformed the UK Small Cap peer group over the last three and five years. Perhaps more importantly, since Jonathan Allison and Ian Hewett took charge of the fund in March last year, the NAV has outperformed both the benchmark and the UK Small Cap peer group. · Attractive yield – The fund has a historical dividend yield of 2.8%, based on the current share price, and was 1.07x covered by revenue in 2016. The yield, which is boosted by the fund’s allocation to fixed income, is at the higher end of the small cap peer group. Dividend growth has been above 3% in each of the last four financial years and the fund also benefits from a revenue reserve equivalent to 1.4x aggregate dividends in FY2016. · Discount wider than peers – The fund’s discount is currently around 20%, which is at the wider end of the UK Small Cap peer group. It is broadly in line with its 12 month average, but over the period the discount has ranged between 17% and 25%. In June the differential in discount level between the fund and the UK Small Cap peer group reached its highest level in the last five years, and, although it has since narrowed, it still remains significant. Winterflood View Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income has a solid performance record, with outperformance of both its benchmark and peer group over the last five years. However, the focus on quality makes it likely that the fund would lag in rapidly rising markets. In terms of its market capitalisation the fund is at the smaller end of the peer group and so liquidity can be patchy. However, we believe that the 2.8% yield is attractive and the 20% discount offers value, both in absolute terms and also relative to the fund’s small cap peers. Given the relatively small size of the fund, performance is likely to be the key driver of any re-rating rather than share buybacks. It is also possible that there could be some discount tightening in the lead up to the fund’s next continuation vote, which is due in 2020 and is held every five years.

Got ahead of itself and was trading at par or even at a premium to NAV. Became "expensive". Whereas HRI was behind with a massive discount of 18% which is now narrowing. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

QuePassa Herald is probably rising due to the surge in price of IQE - SDV (you quote SDT, but I assume that you mean SDV) doing well to remain flat while FTSE is down 80 points.

Quepassa - I would like a reduction in the Herald discount as well, but considering the discount over the last 5 years, I see no real chance of it happening. The small cap trusts generally have done well (& better than Herald)over the last year or so, and discounts have narrowed but Herald does not pay a dividend and this, I think, is the main reason why Herald has remained where it is. As to your point re money flowing into Europe - Herald has very little outside the UK & US - so why should this money affect it? Publicity - Scottish Mortgage & Allianz make more noise and hence attract more attention so do better with their discounts. Perhaps you would explain a little more why you think the discount will narrow quickly?

A poster from another thread wrote this: "with a market cap of £736 million herald isn't far off making it into the ftse 250. JP Morgan indian trust is ftse 250 with a market cap of 785... so it only seems like a matter of time until we get there - that may decrease the discount..." Good point and further supportive evidence for a rapid and dramatic tightening of Discount to NAV. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

I like this Trust a lot. However, I have recently switched the majority of my holdings into Herald General Investment Trust (HRI) which is a much bigger Trust with approaching £1billion of assets and which is focused on the smaller cap Tech + Media sector with a good weighting in UK and North America and 10% Cash. This Chelverton smaller cap trust trades at a PREMIUM nowadays ( having a few years ago been at a whopping 20% ++ Discount ). For some reason which I cannot put my finger on - probably due to lack of profile and publicity and being off the radar- HRI still trades at a MASSIVE discount of 18% despite some excellent recent performance and a very good pedigree. With money flowing fast into Europe and with a great track-record of having increased shareholder money 10x since inception combined with a low management fee of 1%, in my opinion HRI looks totally undervalued by the market, if not misunderstood and mispriced. When I look at sector comparisons like SDT, Patience capital, Schroders' small cap funds, JPM smaller and even big-brother and Tech giant Scottish Mortgage, the discount on HRI looks totally out of whack with the rest of the market. Additionally, HRI have a share buy-back program and the cash to support it. For seekers of value and hunters of big discounts, it appears to me that at an inexplicable 18% discount-to-Nav that HRI has a great deal to offer. Personally, I see the discount ripe for very rapid compression. Good Luck All. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

I've sold about 30% today - the share price is at a premium to NAV and thats normally shortlived. I'm also concerned at the general valuation of equities which I think is a bit stretched. No concerns about the trust and will look to add should a discount appear - the average over the last year is about 5% and has often been 10% or more.

Smaller companies may be the way forward for me. My largest holding anywhere is now Marlboroughs micro cap fund and that has done really well. Over a 10 year timeframe (when hopefully I will retire) I am hoping it will average 10% or more. This will be another long term hold too.
