Ashmore Global Opportunities Limited
Ashmore Global Opportunities Limited (“AGOL”) is a closed ended investment company incorporated and registered in Guernsey and listed on the London Stock Exchange in December 2007. AGOL’s original investment objective was to deploy capital in a diversified portfolio of global emerging market strategies with a principal focus on special situtions and to actively manage these with a view to maximising total returns.
After AGOL traded at a discount to NAV over a long period of time, the Board, in consultation with the Investment Manager and Shareholders, proposed a managed wind down of AGOL which was subsequently approved by Shareholders at the EGM on 13 March 2013. The Board consequently changed the investment objective of AGOL to an orderly realisation of AGOL's assets in order to return cash to Shareholders.
