The trouble is it is only relative value versus the ordinary shares. The yield is still very low.

Should we few remaining holders gain any sense of comfort from the see through NAV being an estimated 110%+ higher?

These are well over priced given the premium. Only just below the launch price but the NAV starts with an 8!...ouch.

"No hedging showed higher performance." Maybe so, but with Korea about to embark on QE things might be different...Will give it a miss for now.

Skyship is probably right, Weiss have written a paper on portfolio performance with and without hedging currency risk. No hedging showed higher performance. But ultimately they do hedge through portfolio diversification.

Mention in daily dispatch from Money week. Anyone know if they do any currency hedging? Without knowing that, this is a gamble, no?

Well this didn't stay above 100p for long. It looks like their market timing wasn't quite right. Still at a premium after losing circa 5-10% of the new issue money! hmmm

Seeing the mention of Ruffer in post 27 I thought I'd track Ruffer's other holdings on the WAM thread too. http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=24182742&from=1792

anley, Have you noticed that another thread had been started for this share? http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=29741829 I'd suggest using that one if you are interested in discussing WKOF as it is likely to have more people following it since it has more posts than this thread. As the FT article notes Korean preference shares are a somewhat esoteric asset class, so I doubt there will be enough interest to sustain two threads.

There are some interesting large shareholders in for the medium to long term ride.

The FT 1st June had an interesting article on this investment trust quoted on AIM. I have bought today - above NAV - just to see how this share performs. I plan to add as and when. Good trading.................

.....and here is the missing final para: It is deeply contrarian stuff, but titter ye not; institutional investors in this fund include outfits like Ruffer, Henderson, Miton and Advance Emerging Capital, all of whom know a thing or two about adventurous stuff. One added bonus is that in four years' time shareholders will have the opportunity to elect to realise their investment at NAV less costs – which should provide some comfort for investors worried about this fund vanishing into oblivion.
