More about Skin In The Game – SEC Chair sells shares

This article reflects the personal view of Cliff Weight and does not necessarily coincide with ShareSoc Policy.

Cliff Weight is a director of ShareSoc.

Cliff owns shares in SEC.

Nothing in this article should be viewed as advice.

A chair selling into the market for no good reason on a day when the trust is buying back shares; not something you see every day. The RNS  does not explain why! What little alignment of interest there was with shareholders has been further eroded. This is a big red flag to me.

As I have noted before, my personal view is that if you like SEC Fund Manager Ken’s growth portfolio sell SEC and buy his OEIC.
