Citywire Selection Verdict: John Wood is wary of inflated UK company valuations and maintains a defensive portfolio with a fifth in cash. Rachel Reutter recently took over from Ben Leyland as Wood’s second-in-command. The pair look for sustainable growth, steering clear of financials and telecoms in favour of businesses investing in capital expenditure and research & development. A disciplined approach to stock selection gives this fund one of the best risk-reward profiles in the sector. A safe and consistent pick in the UK equity space.
