Investment Update


Liquidity Diversification

During May 2020, the Company decided to diversify the liquid portion (listed securities) of its portfolio which it considered to be prudent particularly in the light of current volatile markets. Accordingly, the Company's holdings in Polymetal International Plc and Ivanhoe Mines Ltd were sold down during the month to take advantage of the recent strong rises in their respective share prices. The cash generated from these sales is in the process of being reinvested in a spread of listed precious metal shares, selection of which will  draw on the research and expertise of the Investment Manager's highly rated gold and precious metals team. These investments will all be highly liquid and be held in the portfolio to provide a source of working capital and until the funds are required for reinvestment in the Company's core strategy so that the Company remains fully invested in the mining market.
