Standard Life Investments UK Smaller Companies

Citywire Selection Verdict: Harry Nimmo’s policy of running his winners has led him to follow many a smaller company up the food chain and he now has close to 55 per cent of the fund in medium-sized UK firms. This is balanced against over a quarter invested in unquoted stocks. However, performance has been patchy, leaving it trailing the benchmark over the medium term. The run up to and aftermath of Britain’s decision to leave the EU has proved a difficult time for the sector and, although we acknowledge Nimmo’s ability to find a bargain, we will be keeping a close eye on his progress throughout 2016.
