PEY or PEYS?

I see that Princess Private Equity comes in two flavours, PEY being the euro (original) version and PEYS the sterling version.

Are there any advantages/disadvantages of holding PEY compared to PEYS?

You will have FX charges to buy and hold PEY.

I don't think the Sterling version was available when I first invested in PEY; there's been no issue with owning the EUR denominated version in my Hargreaves Lansdown SIPP.

Perhaps worth posting that this is my single best investment, ever.

Check your dividend statements. I can't believe HL aren't having you for FX costs on every dividend unless you have an account that allows you to hold €. The underlying security is ISIN GG00B28C2R28, and the £ and € shares are merely denominations of this. I too originally held PEY, but swapped them for PEYS to avoid the FX hit - this should be a cost free transaction, since you are not changing the underlying, just the denomination.

It's done pretty well for me too.

Thanks Genou. There’s a 28c divi due next month, I’ll keep a close eye on the exchange rate I get charged...

Hello everyone, first post so here goes!

I hold both, PEY & PEYS.

PEY has been amongst my best performing stocks and real bonus for income.

I bought back in the bad old day with a large discount to NAV. Alongside a number of 2nd hand VCT's.

I recently started adding PEYS to my partners portflio, mainly as a lower risk strategy, and in my absence, if that ever happened, currency it's one less thing for her to have to worry about.

Given the international nature of the holdings currency risk will always be there.

I will be buying more PEYS for her, if and when opportunities arise.

I don't like buying PE or VCT's at this point in a bull market as my chosen stratgy is to buy them when there is blood on the streets.

For the moment I think PEYS offers reasonable value in a difficult market.
