Past performance is not an indication of future performance.

Capital at risk.

The fund invests predominantly in the Numis Smaller Companies universe including AIM and is managed by a respected UK small cap team. The investment process combines a macro-economic overlay with detailed bottom up company analysis, seeking under-researched assets with extensive growth prospects. The fund is style-agnostic and will seek to outperform across all market conditions. 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 philosophy is a balance of top down and bottom up inputs, with a flexible approach to value and growth tilts, depending on the macro view taken. Top down analysis factors are economic growth, interest rate cycle, industry trends. Bottom up factors include management, earnings growth, re-rating potential and financial stability. Weekly stock selection meetings led by Nickols are held with each analyst in the team covering their own sectors. Internal conclusions are then compared to sell-side analyst forecasts. The team adopts a screening process to identify potential stock specific opportunities. The emphasis will be on companies that have the ability to grow profits faster than the market over a sustained period, a higher probability of producing an earnings surprise or the potential for a re-rating.
