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 60 per cent of the fund in medium-sized UK firms. This is balanced with over a quarter invested in the Alternative Investment Market, and large positions in consumer services and industrials together make up more than half the portfolio. Performance has been below par of late, taking it below the benchmark over periods of 5 years or less. We believe Nimmo’s long-term track record is a testament to his ability to find a bargain, though we will be monitoring his performance this year.
