Overview

Please bear in mind that all investments involve risk and the value of, and any potential income from, your investment may fluctuate and are not guaranteed.

Our proposition is distinct; We back outstanding entrepreneurs and high growth private companies with permanent crossover capital.

We identify which business models are best equipped to exploit an evolving opportunity through truly innovative and cutting-edge technologies and back them to succeed.

Our attractiveness to companies is our ability to fund them up to and through IPO, helping them de-risk this process and align with a natural buyer of listed equity.

Our attractiveness to investors is that our crossover proposition allows us access to some of the most exciting private growth names, which are unavailable to most investors.

Our proposition is based on our ability to offer material crossover funding, underpinned by over £6 billion1 of capital managed by Jupiter Asset Management focused on the UK small and mid-cap listed market. This pool of funds is the largest of its kind and makes us one of the biggest IPO investors in the UK.

Key fund facts

Chysalis Investments Limited (the “Company”) is an investment trust that is listed on the London Stock Exchange.

The investment objective of the Company is to generate long term capital growth through investing in a portfolio consisting primarily of equity or equity-related investments in unquoted and listed companies.

Its fund managers are Nick Williamson and Richard Watts, who head up Jupiter’s UK Small & Mid Cap team.
Investment policy
Investments will be primarily in equity and equity-related instruments (which shall include, without limitation, preference shares, convertible debt instruments, equity-related and equity-linked notes and warrants) issued by portfolio companies. The Company will also be permitted to invest in partnerships, limited liability partnerships and other legal forms of entity where the investment has equity like return characteristics.

For the purposes of this investment policy, unquoted companies shall include companies with a technical listing on a stock exchange but where there is no liquid trading market in the relevant securities on that market (for example, companies with listings on The International Stock Exchange and the Cayman Stock Exchange). Further, the Company shall be permitted to invest in unquoted subsidiaries of companies whose parent or group entities have listed equity or debt securities.

The Company may invest in publicly traded companies (including participating in the IPO of an existing unquoted company investment), subject to the investment restrictions below. In particular, unquoted portfolio companies may seek IPOs from time to time following an investment by the Company, in which case the Company may continue to hold its investment without restriction.

The Company is not expected to take majority shareholder positions in portfolio companies but shall not be restricted from doing so. Further, there may be circumstances where the ownership of a portfolio company exceeds 50% of voting and/or economic interests in that portfolio company notwithstanding an initial investment in a minority position. While the Company does not intend to focus its investments on a particular sector, there is no limit on the Company’s ability to make investments in portfolio companies within the same sector if it chooses to do so.

The Company will seek to ensure that it has suitable investor protection rights through its investment in portfolio companies where appropriate.

The Company may acquire investments directly or by way of holdings in special purpose vehicles, intermediate holding vehicles or other fund or similar structures.
