Portfolio Update

Queen's Walk Investment Limited
03 April 2007


3 April 2007

Queen's Walk Investment Limited (the 'Company')
Top Ten Holdings and Portfolio Update

The Company's quarterly notification of the top ten holdings in its investment
portfolio is set out below. This has been prepared on the basis of the effective
yield booked for each investment as at 31 December 2006 and remains subject to
material adjustment once the process of valuation of the Company's investment
portfolio as at 31 March 2007 has been completed.


While the Company has not published a complete list of all assets in its
investment portfolio since its IPO and does not intend to do so on a regular
basis going forward, the Company has decided to supplement its regular
disclosure at this time in advance of providing shareholders with an estimate of
the Company's net asset value. A complete list of investments by asset category
is also set out below. This has also been prepared on the basis of the effective
yield booked for each investment as at 31 December 2006 and therefore also
remains subject to material adjustment once the process of valuation of the
Company's investment portfolio as at 31 March 2007 has been completed


The Company's investment manager, Cheyne Capital Management (UK) LLP, continues
to analyse variables in the current market environment relating to the valuation
of the Company's investment portfolio and is working with the Company's advisors
to enable the Company to provide shareholders with an estimate of the Company's
net asset value as soon as practicable.

About the Company:

Queen's Walk Investment Limited is a Guernsey-incorporated investment company
listed on the London Stock Exchange. The Company's investment objective is to
preserve capital and to provide stable returns to shareholders in the form of
quarterly dividends. To achieve this, the Company invests primarily in a
diversified portfolio of subordinated tranches of asset backed securities,
including the unrated 'equity' or 'first loss' residual income position
typically retained by the banks or other financial institutions which have
originated the loan assets that collateralise a securitisation transaction. The
Company makes such investments where its investment manager, Cheyne Capital
Management (UK) LLP, considers the coupon or cashflows from the investment to be
attractive relative to the credit exposure of the underlying asset collateral.
The Company believes that its investment focus provides equity investors with
exposure to a relatively new investment opportunity in this asset class.

to be, 'forward-looking statements'. These forward-looking statements can be
