In addition, BFIC intends to seek to work closely, where appropriate, with the board and senior management of its investments to increase the long term value of these holdings and to encourage the introduction of shareholder friendly initiatives.
Investors are able to buy shares in BFIC. In addition they can pool their local shareholdings in exchange for shares in BFIC and partner with the Company with a view to energizing and improving the value of its investments by ensuring shareholders have an effective say in the operations and financial performance of its investments.
