Robert Rayne, Chairman, commented

“The first six months of 2022 have been challenging due to the overall market conditions and the consequential impact on capital markets and valuations. The team running our most recent investment, Dacian Petroleum, are making good progress and the business has been cash generative since day one. We continue to focus on identifying opportunities in our three main investment themes, energy, real estate and late stage private equity.”
