How you can invest in venture capital and still maintain a margin of safety Firsthand Technology Value Fund $SVVChttp://microfundy.com/post/119356182465/how-you-can-invest-in-venture-capital-and-still
Twitter (pre-IPO) is 11% of its total portfolio. This is sure to help this fund once Twitter comes on to the IPO market.
This closed ended fund, classified as a common stock due to its Business Development Company status, is basically a hedge fund. It collects 2% on all AUM on top of 20% of any net realized gains. The company's holdings as of 06/30/13 are approximately 40% equities and 60% cash. This means that the equities held by this closed ended fund will have to outperform the market by 250% just to track the benchmark, before management fees! Arguments to own it are that it trades as a discount to its NAV. The reason it trades at a discount to its NAV is because the last time it traded at a premium, shareholders got crushed by equity dilution as the company raised its share count 150% just before the Facebook IPO flop. Stay away!
