Management contractNVM Private Equity Limited receives a management fee, payable quarterly in advance, at the rate of 2.06% of gross assets less current liabilities, calculated at half-yearly intervals as at 31-Mar and 30-Sep. NVM bears the cost of Sarasin & Partners LLPs fees for managing the listed fixed-interest portfolio. The proposed performance-related fee will become payable only when the total return (defined as movement in NAV plus dividends paid) in a financial year exceeds a specified minimum hurdle rate. The hurdle rate will be a composite rate comprising (a) 7% on average long-term investments and (b) the higher of (i) base rate and (ii) 3% on average cash and near-cash investments during the year. The amount of cash or near-cash investments qualifying for the second category will be limited to 25% of total investments so that any excess of cash or near-cash investments over 25% of total investments will be subject to the higher rate of 7%. The performance-related fee in each financial year will be equivalent to 15% of the amount, if any, by which the total return exceeds the hurdle. Following a financial year or years in which NAV reduces, a high water mark will apply to the calculation of the performance-related fee whereby an amount equivalent to the reduction will be deducted from subsequent total returns achieved prior to any further performance-related fee calculation taking place. The performance-related fee is subject to a cap of 2.25% of opening NAV for the relevant financial year.
