GCP Infrastructure tackles the premium question
by Robert St George on Mar 31, 2014 at 14:43
Stephen Ellis, a partner at infrastructure specialist GCP, tells Wealth Manager why it’s the market’s job to set trusts’ discounts.
The £361 million GCP Infrastructure fund currently trades on a premium of 8% to its net asset value, but Ellis noted that despite this high share price it still yields 7%.
Ellis also explains why investing in infrastructure debt rather than equity is preferable, where he’s finding ‘government-backed cash flows’, and why he declined £20 million in a recent oversubscribed fundraising.
