  • Schroder BSC Social impact says it has committed over 80% and invested over 55% of the net proceeds of its IPO. Most of the money went into buying seven investments that were listed in the prospectus. It has also bought £2.5m of bonds issued by Triodos Bank. Triodos lends to the likes of Middlesbrough-based charity MAIN, which supports people with a range of disabilities, including autism and cerebral palsy, and Langham Court, a specialist care home offering pioneering dementia care in Hindhead, Surrey.
  • Jupiter UK Growth says that it is waiting on tax clearance from HMRC before posting its circular on its liquidation/rollover plan. Approval is expected within about a month. The cash option will be the default option and investors will have to make an election if they want to rollover into the Brown Advisory Global Leaders Fund.
  • Target Healthcare says that the administration of the first dose under the vaccination programme is well advanced in 86% of its care homes, with commencement expected for the remainder of the portfolio prior to the government target of 31 January.
