Standard Life Investments UK Smaller Companies

on May 15, 2013 at 12:00

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 two thirds of the fund in medium-sized UK firms. This is balanced with a substantial component invested in the Alternative Investment Market, and large positions in consumer services and industrials together make up almost half the portfolio. Performance has been below par of late, taking it below the benchmark. Nevertheless, we rate this manager highly and remain confident he can deliver going forward. Access to his strategy through the investment trust allows for gearing, pushing performance higher still.
