Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of UK companies that are in the bottom 10% of the UK stock market at the time the fund purchases them. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. The small cap universe is an extensive, diverse and constantly changing area of the UK market. Smaller companies offer investors exposure to some niche growth areas that, often, cannot be accessed through large companies. They also tend to grow more rapidly than larger firms and can go on to become household names. Our investment approach centres on stock selection, which means we focus on each company's ability to create value for shareholders, rather than try to predict what will happen in the wider economic environment. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
