Capital at risk.

The objective of the fund is to provide investors with capital growth by investing in smaller companies, new issues and companies going through a difficult period with good recovery prospects. The portfolio has an unusually large number of holdings reflecting its bias to the smaller companies and in particular AiM stocks, some FTSE 250 companies will also be included. Stock selection is primarily bottom-up with a growth bias. Smaller companies’ shares can be more volatile and less liquid than larger company shares, so smaller companies funds can carry more risk.

Investment Process

The investment process is bottom up driven with a bias towards growth stocks. The team review the macroeconomic environment monthly and at times the portfolio may have some thematic orientation, including modest style tilts. The investment universe is diverse and spans the FTSE Small Cap and FTSE Fledgling indices, the AiM market, and smaller FTSE 250 companies. Ideas are generated internally by the extensive research resources, via the broker community and through other external contacts. Hargreave is supported by a team of 8 - the size of the team enables him to monitor a large percentage of the small cap universe. The team carry out all their own research on companies, which includes analysis of financial statements and meeting with company management. Hargreave controls all final investment decisions.
