All gone a bit quiet - due an update, nothing been said for 5 weeks.

Stuart Widdowson got a double page in the last IC, but wasn't anything said about Odyssean/SEC, other than that discussions were at "Board level".

I've taken a small holding in this trust and Odyssean Investment Trust PLC today. The last two small company trusts that I didn't have in my portfolio. Interestingly the founders of Odyssean have lodged a general meeting at SEC. Probably quite a bit of logic in the two combining as they have a similar approach.

Its a difficult one as Gresham House are good. I am a shareholder in them back from the days when Gresham House was an investment trust.

Odyssean is backed by Christopher Mills and Armitage; if Odyssean doesn't deliver then Harwood will step in. Harwood are equally good.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

So who made decisions? Team, House or SEC?

Now lower than three years ago with zero dividend. Another fund where the so called professionals cannot outperform my cat.

Well, interesting RNS. As I suggested before, SW is likely to want meaningful stakes in some of SECs underlying investments. It is no surprise Harwood are talking to SECs shareholders.I personally think that SEC now needs to be wound up, and part of the winding up process could involve a sale of assets to Harwood new fund at close to NAV. If it wasn't for the fact that Lord Rothschild owns GVQ then I am sure this would be under discussion. As far as I see it, there is little reason to stick with the current manager.

don't know about 'hand of god" but Ian armitage, widdowsons ex boss at Hg capital, was a steady acquirer of SEC shares at sametime as he ran down his very sizeabe holding in HG. I think he owns circ
a 5% of SEC. He is now ba king widdowsons new venture somake sense if he sells downhis SEC stake to fund widdowson.

Make sense it may do; happen it hasn't.

Also get the impression SW wants to go much smaller, which is possibly outside of his mandate with SEC.

Hard not to get the impression that he's left under a cloud - the RNS didn't even mention his new venture.

I agree that many SEC holders will want to follow him - hence I think it's going a lot lower, perhaps to c.25% discount, which wouldn't be unreasonable for the reasons mentioned in posts above.

If I were SEC board, I'd be looking to move to a new - but well-respected - manager ASAP. Feels like bridges have been burned with SW, and isn't as if his recent performance was too great anyway.

Yes but the difference here is that SW is aiming to set up his own fund doing what SEC does. He will likely want to invest in many of the same stocks, most of the investors in SEC want him to manage their assets, there is the overhang you mention. It just makes sense for everyone to allow SW to move to Harwood and take the management of SEC with him. If Lord R didn't own GVQ I'm sure it would already have happened.
