Please find attached our Ranger Direct Lending Fund plc (“Ranger” or the “fund”) IPO Share Offer application form and a copy of the IPO prospectus. The Offer is now open and the price has been set at £10 per share.
Ranger is seeking to raise ~£135m to invest in a diversified portfolio of loans sourced by direct lending platforms. Like P2P, we believe direct lending is a strong competitor to the traditional bank lending model and we think this fund is well placed to benefit from growth in this asset class, whilst also offering investors a very attractive yield. The fund is targeting a dividend yield of 10 per cent and is seeking to be listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.
The fund has confirmed the Share Offer period will close at 5pm on Friday 24 April 2015, so investors should act quickly.
The minimum application amount for Retail Investors has been confirmed as £1,000 and must be in multiples of £10.
Midas will accept Application Forms up to Noon on Thursday 23 April 2015.

- If you wish to open new accounts for family members (please note there is a charge of £20 to open new accounts) then complete an extra IPO application form for each new account. You may apply in your children’s names, utilising your funds, but would need to open separate accounts for each child and transfer the relevant amount from your account to the new account to demonstrate separate applications are being made.
