- Baronsmead Venture Trust said Friday its net asset value a share rose 6.9% in the year through September.

Net asset value per share increased 6.9% to 94.5p in the 12 months to 30 September, and £7.0m new investment were made during the year, the company said.

The company proposed a final dividend of 4.5p a share.

'Although the UK economy has remained largely resilient over the past year, decreasing consumer confidence, the ongoing uncertainty in the UK and volatility in global markets has seen a drop in market indices which we anticipate may remain a feature in the short term,' Baronsmead said.
