2017 Full Year results

Results for the full year to 31 January 2017

Mark Fane, Chairman, said: “The results for the year ended 31 January 2017 have been excellent and there has been faster than expected progress against key objectives set at the time of the change of manager to ICG. The Portfolio performance has been strong against a backdrop of a challenging and volatile market.

“In line with the ongoing succession plans being implemented by the Board, it is my intention to step down at the AGM on 13 June 2017 after eight years as Chairman. The Board is proposing that Jeremy Tigue is appointed Chairman subject to his re-election at the AGM. Jeremy has a wealth of experience in the investment trust sector and has made an invaluable contribution to the governance of the Company.”
