Activites BMO Private Equity Trust plc (formerly F&C Private Equity Trust plc) aims to exploit the growth of private equity globally to generate superior returns to the quoted markets. In recent years the Trust's portfolio has broadened considerably, most notably into Continental Europe where the Manager has benefited from the expansion of the use of private equity to finance the growth of smaller and medium-sized companies. Managers seek to unlock value from unquoted companies and the venture capital sector. The Trust is well diversified by industry, geography and stage of investment. Private equities are equity securities of companies that are not listed on a public stock exchange. Private equities are generally illiquid and so must be thought of as a long-term investment.
