Investment Companies

We are a specialist team of experienced professionals focussed on listed investment companies and providing a complete sales, trading, corporate broking, corporate finance, and corporate strategy resource.

Team presentation available on request from Juzzie Haire.

Corporate Broking

We are broker to 30 investment companies with a combined market capitalisation of c.£15 billion including seven FTSE 250 constituents. In this capacity we work with funds managed by leading asset management brand - including Baillie Gifford, JPMorgan, Jupiter, Fidelity, Henderson, BlackRock and BMO - as well as partnering with specialist boutiques.

Our business revolves around building and maintaining relationships with our retained corporate brokerships through which we act as the intermediary between Board, asset manager, shareholders and potential investors. In particular our corporate broking service focusses on:-

-  creating and maintaining supportive shareholder registers;
-  providing an informed and effective interface with shareholders and potential investors;
-  regular verbal and written Board reporting and analysis as appropriate;
-  providing appropriate dealing liquidity; and
-  advising on market and regulatory matters.

Equity Sales

Cenkos is counterparty for all major investment company investors with extensive client access to:-

-  institutional fund managers including fund of funds and multi-asset funds;
-  local authority and corporate self-managed pension funds;
-  wealth managers, private banks, private client shareholders and D2C platforms; and
-  family offices and charities.

Our client access has enabled Cenkos to raise additional capital and launch new investment companies for our clients.

Since 2006 we have helped our clients raise over £3.5 billion of equity.

Market Making

We make markets in approximately 150 investment company securities on a daily basis with a focus on our corporate broking clients for whom we commit capital to afford them appropriate liquidity when required. Our market makers provide an automated best-execution trading facility for retail clients and operate estimated NAV models which provide real time pricing for investors.

We strive to achieve a lead market share in the trading of all our broking clients and thus have superior visibility of buyers / sellers. Cenkos is ranked number 1 market maker by volume for the majority of our broking clients.

Our market making capital is used to facilitate market liquidity for investors, not to trade proprietary positions.

Corporate finance

We have advised on over 70 investment company corporate finance transactions since 2006. Our corporate finance team has experience of every type of investment company corporate finance transactions.
