    it has done so by taking higher risks ... so i reduced my cash risk , but let the profits run ( via the DRP )

    like my splurge in MQG take the risk ( but rescue that cash if successful )

    WAX is a high turn-over LIC and may not have a single holding left from when i entered ( 5 years back )

    I thought WAX was lower turn over than the rest of the Wilson stable. Can't quantify as I haven't looked closely.

    ***Given Wilson AM's absolute return approach, WAX has the flexibility to invest across the full sector and market capitalisation spectrum. WAX will naturally tilt towards small/micro cap stocks and may hold significant levels of cash if opportunities cannot be found. WAX will typically hold between 20 to 60 stocks and exhibit portfolio turnover of between 40% p.a. to 90% p.a. ***

    that said the approach has been successful ( but logic suggests a poor choice is possible by the increased stock transactions .)

    i also hold
    CCP ( at no cash risk )
    RCG ( at no cash risk )
    PME ( at no cash risk )
    TRS ( at reduced cash risk )
