|Objective and Investment Policy|
Below are selected excerpts from the Company’s objective and investment policy:
The Company’s primary investment objective is to maximise capital growth by investing in a diversiﬁed portfolio of private equity funds and, occasionally, directly in private companies.
The Company’s policy is to make unquoted investments, in general, by subscribing for investments in new private equity funds and buying secondary interests in existing private equity funds and, occasionally, by acquiring direct holdings in unquoted companies, usually either where a vendor is seeking to sell a combined portfolio of fund interests and direct holdings or where there is a private equity manager, well known to the Company’s Manager, investing on substantially the same terms.
The Company’s policy is to adopt a global investment approach. The Company’s strategy is to mitigate investment risk through diversiﬁcation of its underlying portfolio by geography, sector and investment stage. Since the Company’s assets are invested globally on the basis, primarily, of the merits of individual investment opportunities, the Company does not adopt maximum or minimum exposures to speciﬁc geographic regions, industry sectors or the investment stage of underlying investments.
