About Harry Nimmo

Standard Life's UK smaller companies expert Harry Nimmo refuses to follow consensus opinion and takes a contrarian tack to seek out profitable situations that the market may have missed. Another strong feature of his style is the emphasis he places on research. He realises smaller companies require thorough examination and draws on a team of three investment directors to cross-check businesses in the sector. Born in Edinburgh in 1957, Nimmo graduated from Dundee with an MA in Geography and went on to complete an MBA in Surveying at Edinburgh in 1984. He joined Standard Life shortly afterwards as an investment analyst for the UK equity funds team and became an investment manager for the group in 1993. Nimmo took the helm of the Standard Life UK Small Companies fund when it was launched in January 1997 and runs a portfolio comprising 50-60 stocks.
