Management contractManagement fee is 0.4% per annum, payable monthly in arrears, of net assets managed by the Manager (with debenture stock valued at market value). Investments made in third party collectives on strategic grounds are charged at a reduced rate of 0.25% per annum of the month end market value of those investments. A performance fee may be payable annually, equal to 10% of the value of net asset outperformance of the benchmark in the year. This is subject to a maximum absolute cap on the level of fees (including both the management fee and the performance fee) that the Manager can earn in any one year of 1% of average month-end net assets. Performance above this cap will be carried forward to the subsequent period for inclusion in the calculation of performance in that period. Any underperformance must also be carried forward, thus creating a high watermark. The management agreement is terminable on six months notice given by either party.
Borrowing limitBorrowing shall not exceed the aggregate of the nominal amount of the share capital of the company
Continuation / Wind-up provisionThe Fund takes and annual authority to issue up to 10% of its share capital. The Fund also has the authority to repurchase up to 14.99% of its own shares and has an unlimited life. The Board seeks to limit the discount to NAV at which the Company's shares trade close to 5%. Any shares bought back can either be cancelled or held in treasury, to be sold as and when the shares return to a premium or narrower discount than the weighted average discount at which they had been bought back and in any event at no more that a 5% discount to the prevailing net asset value per share.
