They seem to have a bit indeed, 0.98% of the pot according to the list of holdings for May 2018. Not sure if it is direct or "see through" holdings though. If the latter, that would be an extra layer from whatever fund or fund(s) is holding it for WTAN. If it were BTEM (British Empire) I would bet they would be "active" shareholders, but Witan may not bother. Still, I wish they did and opposed it too. The Leverhulme Trust holds a significant bit of Unilever and is full of ex-Unilever bosses. They will vote in favour. At 75% (of UK shares) the bar is pretty high, if the noise in the Daily Mail and the likes is loud enough, they may indeed find it difficult. I do not hold any directly, just through the likes of WTAN and FRCL.

I trust that Witan will be voting against this crazy Unilever relocation to Holland. Phone them to make your opinion heard.

After years of watching her cash savings slowly die in her ISA my wife has decided to dip a toe in the market. Nothing big, some monthly drip-feed with "money one can afford to lose". I have advised her to go for a global investment trust to limit volatility and make her feel safer by demonstrating that investing was not gambling. She was impressed at my holdings in FRCL but I have coaxed her towards Witan, the geographic spread, while global, is slightly different. I already have a small holding in the sister trust Witan Pacific (WPC). I was a bit wary of the multi-manager approach, it looked like transforming an investment trust in a fund-of-funds-of-funds to me, but it seems to work well indeed.

I see that more than half of the Friends Life shares were snapped up by other investors before Witan could buy them back. I'm not surprised; I've been buying the shares heavily for the last three weeks at an attractive and (hopefully) temporary discount.

Now that the Friends Life shares have been bought back, I expect the discount to narrow back to close to zero.

WTAN and FandC IT are core holdings to any portfolio; not for trading; just long term investments. No amazing highs, no amazing lows. They are where my pension is and I gamble the rest !! DYOR ...

If this bear market persists perhaps WTAN will behave like one of the nifty fifties from the 70s? dyor

I have recently picked up a holding in WTAN as a reasonable route into the market, in general. At a discount of > 10%, not bad value. Also, plenty of MMs trade the stock, so liquidity is good.
