The Company's Board believes the principal risks and uncertainties that relate to an investment in JZCP are as follows:
The Company invests predominantly in unquoted companies and real estate. Therefore, this potential illiquidity means there can be no assurance investments will be realised at their latest valuation or on the timing of such realisations.
Investment Performance and Impact on NAV
The Company is reliant on the Investment Adviser to support the Company's investment portfolio by executing suitable investment decisions. The Investment Adviser provides the Board with an explanation of all investment decisions and also provides quarterly investment reports and valuation proposals of investee companies.
Macroeconomic Risks and Impact on NAV
The Company's performance, and underlying NAV, is influenced by economic factors that affect the demand for products or services supplied by investee companies and the valuation of Real Estate interests held. Economic factors will also influence the Company's ability to invest and realise investments and the level of realised returns. A proportion of the Company's investments are denominated in non-US dollar currencies, primarily the euro. Fluctuations to these exchange rates will affect the NAV of the Company.
Uncertainties in today's world that influence economic factors include:
(ii) War in Ukraine and resulting energy crisis
(iii) Global Warming
JZCP's share price is subject to market sentiment and will also reflect any periods of illiquidity when it may be difficult for shareholders to realise shares without having a negative impact on share price.
Operational and Personnel
Although the Company has no direct employees, the Company considers what dependence there is on key individuals within the Investment Adviser and service providers that are key to the Company meeting its operational and control requirements.
