Investment objectives

To achieve growth of shareholder value Hansa Trust PLC invests in a portfolio of special situations,where individual holdings or specific sectors may constitute a significant proportion of the portfolio or that of the equity of the companies concerned. This investment approach may produce returns which are not replicated by movements in any market indices. Performance is measured against an absolute benchmark derived from the three year average rolling rate of return of the five year government bond, plus two per cent. Investments are intended to add value over the medium to longer term through a non market correlated, conviction based investment style.
