IN BRIEF: Henderson Alternative Strategies Underperforms Benchmark

Tue, 4th Aug 2020 14:28

Henderson Alternative Strategies Trust PLC - Edinburgh-headquartered company conducting orderly realisation of its assets - Net asset value per share 286.9 pence as at March 31, down from 335.5p the previous year. NAV total return negative 13.8% compared to negative 6.0% return of benchmark the FTSE World Total Return Index. Chair Richard Gubbins says that in the wake of Covid-19, "few companies were able to escape the severe market downturn." He adds that "the prices of companies which offer alternative asset strategies tend to suffer disproportionately as a consequence of their comparative lack of transparency and of their illiquid nature" and that "poor price performance tends to be exacerbated by the inability to trade in volume owing to the disappearance of those who previously made markets in the shares." Declares final and only dividend of 5.50p per share, taking total for financial year ended March 31 down 27% from a total dividend of 7.50p per share the year before.

Current stock price: 284.00 pence

Year-to-date change: up 7.8%
