RM Secured Direct Lending is exploring new options to raise further funds through a potential issue of new shares.

RM last raised money in March, with gross proceeds of £11.33m via a C share issue and £10.87m through the issue of Zero Dividend Preference shares (ZDPs).  

It also recently scored a £10m revolving credit facility that is now fully committed and drawn down. 

The fund says it is still benefiting from a strong pipeline and optimistic in finding new lending opportunities. The investment trust trades at a 3.6 per cent premium to net asset value (NAV), reflecting strong demand from investors. It has a 6.4 per cent yield.
