Hubbard statutory managers make further 15c payment
Statutory managers of the frozen Hubbard Management Funds will make a further payment to investors of 15 cents in the dollar as they work toward full repayment.
The latest payment, due on March 15, means 25 cents in the dollar has been repaid to investors from the Capital Return Pool in addition to an initial distribution last year of $9 million.
"We have now realised all the liquid assets of HMF and solid progress has been made towards the realisation of the remaining assets, however due to the nature of these, the realisation process will take some time," statutory managers Graeme McGlinn, Richard Simpson and Trevor Thornton of Grant Thornton say.
"Investors will eventually have all of their original capital returned to them."
The fund's portfolio was valued at $40.75 million as at December 31 and the managers decided to reduce and realign larger holdings in that month.
Last year the statutory managers decided against seeking repayments from investors who were overpaid, and the court-ordered clawback of overpayments in the interim distribution has been removed.
