Feb 14th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Strategic Equity Capital (SEC.L, LSE:SEC, LON:SEC) entitled "Initiation Of Coverage". In summary, the report says:
Strategic Equity Capital (SEC) invests in a focused portfolio of smaller (typically less than £300m market cap) UK companies. It holds for the most part listed companies, but SEC’s managers apply a private equity ethos to the selection of investments. The managers aim to identify companies they believe are both undervalued and would benefit from strategic, operational or management initiatives. SEC seeks to bring about positive change by engaging constructively with these companies. Its performance relative to the UK market has been strong over the medium term.
