Audited annual report and financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2020.

Due to COVID-19 the FCA has extended the date for the filing of the audited annual report and financial statements by an additional two months. As a result the fund’s audited annual report and financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2020 will be published and made available to shareholders by 30 September 2020.

Change of name and other prospectus changes

From 3 February 2020 the name of the fund will change to ARC TIME UK Infrastructure Income Fund.  The change of name has been made; to better describe that the fund invests primarily in asset-backed securities exposed to the UK infrastructure, renewable energy and real estate sectors. In addition, the target income return of 5% p.a. will be removed to ensure that the fund continues to be able to invest in defensive securities in the infrastructure sector going forward, for instance, in the event of share prices rising and their dividend yields falling. These changes have been approved by the FCA.  There are no other changes to how the fund is managed or its investment objective.

The investment process

A unique and proven investment process utilising a combination of active and factor-based investment strategies

 

The investment case

Investment in bridges, roads, rail networks, hospitals, and the growing need for more sustainable, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind farms, means these sectors are the cornerstone of the UK’s economic and social welfare. This makes for an attractive investment opportunity. The assets are long term investments, with high barriers to entry, and underlying revenues are often underpinned by long term government-backed subsidies or other long term contracted payments.
