A multi cap income fund with a bias towards investment in small and mid-cap companies.
With its dedicated focus on smaller companies and fundamentals-based stock
picking it aims to deliver risk-adjusted returns with low correlation to its peer group.

Why UK multi cap income? 

+         Diversification: With 54% of dividends forecast to come from just 10 companies on the FTSE 1001, we believe that our small and mid-cap bias offers diversification and results in low correlation with the majority of income funds.

 +         Under-researched: As smaller companies are less researched, less well known and with a perception of higher risk2, they offer income and growth opportunities for those who know where to look. We have a deliberate bias to target over 70% in small and mid-cap stocks, with the remainder of the portfolio held in large cap and cash.

+         Growth drivers: We focus on the sectors we believe drive the UK economy and its future growth potential, in particular: consumer market; technology, media and telecoms; business services; and healthcare & education which account for c.75%3 of the UK’s GDP.

 +         Resilience and strength: We avoid stocks prone to the effects of cyclical risk or large external factors and focus on profitable, cash generative businesses with the potential to grow profits, cash flows and dividends over the longer term.
