Old Mutual UK Select Smaller Companies

 

Citywire Selection Verdict: Dan Nickols typically adopts a defensive style in his £900 million fund, investing in a balanced range of sectors across the UK small and mid-cap universe. The fund has underperformed this year pushing his five-year figures further below benchmark though he remains above the index over seven years. Nickols invests in niche sectors, companies with earnings growth, as well as those that benefit from a change in market conditions.
