Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of UK listed smaller companies. The manager invests in companies that he believes can grow their profits and cash sustainably and faster than the market, and can ultimately become large companies. This stock picking strategy is focused on finding companies where not all the good news is reflected in the share price and the stock valuation is therefore attractive in both absolute as well as relative terms.
