Cabot Square Alternatives Plc (LSE: ALTS) is a new closed-ended evergreen UK Investment Trust for investors to access returns from the alternatives sector to generate an attractive level of sustainable dividend income alongside capital appreciation over the long term.
ALTS has identified the opportunity to create and build Alternative Asset Platforms. The Company will do so by investing directly in a portfolio of infrastructure and property alternative assets (“Alternative Assets”) and in alternative asset managers manging those assets (“Alternative Asset Managers”). The combination on investing in Alternative Assets and their Alternative Asset Managers will create Alternative Asset Platforms.
Alternative Assets will take the form of direct interests in infrastructure, including renewable energy, and property alternative assets or specialist debt secured against infrastructure and property assets.
ALTS is managed by Cabot Square Capital LLP, its Alternative Investment Fund Manager (“AIFM” or “Investment Manager”), which will be advised by Cabot Square Alternatives Adviser LLP (“Investment Adviser”).Read more
