Standard Life Investments launches global smaller companies fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Standard Life Investments is to launch a Global Smaller Companies Fund, which is to be jointly managed by its Head of Smaller Companies, Harry Nimmo (pictured) and Alan Rowsell, Investment Director, Smaller Companies.

Roswell recently joined the team having spent five years working as a US equity portfolio manager for Standard Life Investments in its Boston office.

The Fund, which is due to launch on 19 January, seeks to capture the potentially substantial rewards offered by smaller company investing, with the added diversification benefits of access to a global opportunity set including both emerging and developed market coverage. It will draw on Standard Life Investments’ established stock picking expertise which includes coverage of North America, Europe, the UK, Asia, Japan and Emerging Markets.

The objective of the Fund will be to provide capital growth over the longer term and to provide performance that is consistently above the average fund in its sector. It seeks to generate superior longer-term returns in excess of both smaller and larger company indices through a concentrated portfolio of 40 – 80 stocks. With a volatility rating of 7, the Fund will belong in the IMA Global Sector and be benchmarked against the MSCI All Country World Small Cap Index.
