Years experience

Our investment team has over 70 years of combined experience of investment markets.
The team has been exposed to numerous economic cycles commencing with the Liquidity Squeeze of 1974, the stockmarket crash of 1987, the Tech Wreck of 2001 and the Global Financial Crisis of 2008.
The assessment of merit is a subjective process conducted across numerous parameters of which the dominant is the prospective responsiveness of the share price to the perceived latent catalyst(s). We assess across the following additional factors:
underlying organic cash generation in the investee’s business;
debt level;
liquidity of the stock on market;
competence and motivation of management;
disposition of the share register;
stockbroker research coverage.
Implementation of share purchases is generally staged as confidence in the merit of the investment grows. RAMcap’s objective is to maximize returns. It is not constrained by ESG considerations or RAMcap’s percentage holding in the investee’s capital. The maximum entry position in any one investment is 40% of the portfolio and at a sector level the portfolio constraint is 75%.

RAMcap maintains active contact with numerous stockbroking firms and securities dealers in its search for companies of investment merit. We make and maintain watchful contact with the senior management of our investee companies.

The investment committee constitute the majority ownership of RAMcap.

The ORD portfolio is concentrated and is generally less than 10 stocks. Returns are amplified by use of CFDs. A separate portfolio is maintained for the holders of RAMcap’s redeemable preference ‘REDP’ stock.

The investment committee is remunerated solely for quarterly outperformance against the XSOA index.
