HRI is almost entirely tech shares and IMO would be hit harder in any sell off. The performance here has been pretty solid over the last few years and justifies the fee...although past performance etc etc

Interesting article. With 1.9% charge they are clearly going to expand AUM at all costs. Looms like its going to become a perpetual share printing and placing machine.

Well they timed the issuance wrong - too late in the cycle. Hardly a disaster as they covered the costs no doubt. They just need to carry on doing what they have been and stop being greedy for more AUM. Its not the right time to be buying small caps. Its the right time to be top-slicing. They have done well for me since buying in 2009.

Total disaster here, imo the fund looks overpriced now. Now the City has told them where to stick their fund raising begging bowl and all things considered including the large gearing and eyewatering charges this fund needs to merge with some other or wind itself up imo.

yes - it seems that the manager is frustrated that the fund is not over £100m and this would be a quick way to jack up the total.. but as a holder I would want more incentive(discount) to warrant purchasing more - otherwise would wait to buy at discount to nav in the market anyway ?...... depending upon market conditions ..personally the whole market seems expensive at the moment... but who knows?

From the C Share application form: The conversion of the C Shares into ordinary Shares will be triggered following the earlier of: (i) 90 per cent. of the net proceeds being invested or committed; or (ii) the date six months after the date of admission. The C Shares will convert into new ordinary shares by dividing the net asset value per C Share by the net asset value per Ordinary Share

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
