For iCap shareholders who want to sell, take advantage of the situation by queuing at high price as close as possible to NAV, or even at a premium.

Why?
1. Despite being redflagged on governance and lousy fund management/policy in i3 forum on daily basis, COL is still buying.
2. Since COL keeps buying even the row with the fund manner, it means they need to buy, so take advantage when demand is there.
3. If someone is bidding for the rights to slaughter our goose and if lucky we get a fair portion of the egg but none after that, wont you want a premium to it? So never sell at a discount price.

@observatory When you have a 400 million fund in control, many small cap companies will come knock on your door for "collaboration". You dont even have to wait for NAV increase to makes money, even NAV decrease can makes you handsome money.
But it do depends on what level of responsibility do you hold towards the fund investor.

Why is there selling even now? there could be many reasons:
- short term trader. why YTL power got people sell from rm1 - rm3?
- taking profit. if you accumulate at rm2 few months ago, you are sitting on 40% gain.
- investor needs cash, many icap long term investor are above certain age.

The AUS professor shows COL do BUY/SELL on icap, not pure buying, though the net is buying. You can put yourself on COL shoe and think how you can get the most out of icap as an investor whom goal is not to have a ride as long as possible with the fund manager (vs majority retail investor who want the ride with fund manager).

@FastMoney
Before labelling me aggressive, you should count the number of post both you and dumb made in icap forum as compare to me.

How can COL fire shots? their own performance is worse than icap, AGM also dont attend. COL has the capital, just they alway want to accumulate at discount to maximise profit potential.

Personal opinion:

@dumbmoney
Well, since your intention is not aligned with majority public shareholders, and consider against the mission of the fund during establishment. I think its pretty normal for the fund manager to view you as a threat to the fund and other shareholders.

Why not just move your capital elsewhere? maybe get FastMoney to manage on your behalf which yield 40% in one quarter. That's a win-win-win for 3 parties.

dumbmoney,
Since you know beforehand its common a CEF will be traded at discount @ NAV, why had you bought into icap and try to get elected to board?

Did you read the prospectus beforehand? Does your action fit the interest of the majority public investors and the investment goal in the prospectus?

So why COL keeps buying? They can buy into other open end funds. Why still buying into a close end fund that some claimed has bad governance and having drama? I see it as action speaks louder than words.

Open end fund doesn’t fit long term value investment philosophy as the fund will be forced to unload and miss opportunity grabbing up bargains when shareholders are in panic situation.
How many percent of public investor is making decent returns over long term? Very little. How many losing a great deal of money over long term? Plenty!

I recalled the updates on dual listing exercise in HK was provided shareholders back then by Mr.Tan. Whether there's a vote or not I cant recall, nor the evidence of vote on it, have to seek clarification from ICAP BOD if "expenses on capital dynamic" is mentioned to shareholders before.

For now, my position is still keep holding and add on when NAV gap widens.
Though the 6 million is charged to the fund, and not selling PAKRSON at its height, selling Vitrox too early are mistakes, .ICAP grows the NAV from RM1 to RM3.6, which I appreciate the performance.
I dont expect my fund manger to be a saint who never fail in every single investment decision.

the foreign limit ligation is explained in their road show.
Investor who chooses to unload below NAV, doesn’t unload above NAV are both willing to forego values. Else they should go for mutual funds not close and fund. There sets more investor seeking shares below NTA even the company is loaded with cash.
I’m equally not happy with all dual listing fee, but what if it succeed? Didn’t shareholders voted to support the dual listing exercise after all?

Based on 2.1 from https://citlon.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/AnnualStewardshipReport3-23.pdf.
Here's my thought:
COL suggests share buy back to narrow the gap. if this is obligated, COL can unload their shares at NAV level via ICAP cash holdings and reap a handsome profit. until the cash runs dry, the stock price will be subjected back to discount level again, then COL can scoop up more shares again and wait for the time where the fund manager to unload stocks to turn into cash, and forced to do buy back again.

Btw, COL own fund performance sucks, I'm not interested to let they appoint someone to the board, are you?

Thanks for sharing the CEF liquidated by the banks themselves. I see most institution benchmark performance at a short term, by liquidating it can brings 15-30% gain in performance, good for their annual performance.

Can you share what's the NAV CAGR performance of the Singapore CEF and Amanah small cap fund pre liquidation ?

No need to worry for your life, even hostile takeover during EGM/AGM wont result in blood sheds in Malaysia. Malaysia chinese comes with a loud voice but soft in action.

I would be patiently waiting for your reply on why do you keep vested despite being treated like such. And why COL keep buying despite such bad relationship with Mr.Tan. If this is not a close end fund, institution investor would have dispose their stake even losing money.

COL overall is buying, but they also sell along the way, which is common in share price manipulation. This is being showcased by the two academician during AGM, if they are lying, why not COL drag both to court?

@Fastmoney Not sure what chart are you talking about. You are selecting certain time frame to justify COL action, just need to put yourself in COL shoes.
1. if COL plan to hold long term for NAV appreciation and growth improvement, they would like to accumulate as much as possible at low price.
2. if COL wants an exit at close to NAV. they might pop up the share price, but who will be buying their large chunk at that level? you?
3. if COL able to remove mr. Tan. They can appoint a FM with different investment methodology, worst case they can misuse the funds to work with companies to manipulate share price. Or small holders might dispose their holdings in view Mr.Tan not in charge, and COL would be able to scoop up more shares at lower price, and go for liquidation.
