Aberdeen's Phil Webster: why I'm backing Close Brothers

Phil Webster, manager of the Aberdeen Smaller Companies High Income Trust , explains what has attracted him to Close Brothers.

In this video interview, Webster also rejects the notion that there is no value left in small-caps.

Webster's £62 million trust has returned 92% over the past three years, compared with 65% from the FTSE SmallCap index - and yet despite this outperformance the fund itself offers a value opportunity, given that it trades on a 12% discount.
