Our Portfolio


The portfolio was valued at £1,172 at 31 January 2022

The Top 30 contribute 39% of the Portfolio value. The Portfolio is appropriately diversified by sector and geography. This strikes a good balance between concentration, so that Direct Investments can meaningfully impact performance, and diversification, so that we are not overly exposed to the risks of individual portfolio companies or sectors.

Focus on sectors with defensive growth characteristics

The Portfolio is well diversified and weighted towards sectors with defensive growth characteristics. Technology (24.1%), Healthcare (16.6%), Business Services (11.0%) and Education (5.1%) make up 56.8% of the Portfolio. We feel these are particularly attractive sectors, benefitting from structural growth trends. Within our exposure to the Consumer and Industrial sectors (20.8% and 8.3% respectively), we have a bias to companies with more defensive business models, non-cyclical growth drivers and high recurring revenue streams. We have relatively low exposure to the Financials and Leisure sectors (5.5% and 3.9% respectively).

Quoted companies

We do not actively invest in publicly-quoted companies, but gain listed investment exposure when IPOs are used as a route to exit an investment. In these cases, exit timing typically lies with the third party manager alongside whom we have invested.
