• Global Smallers Companies -NEW BANNER
  • The Trust seeks to exploit the high investment potential of smaller companies listed on global equity markets. Many smaller companies are not widely researched, opening up the potential for our detailed fundamental analysis to identify valuation anomalies. 

    The greater inherent ability of smaller enterprises to grow faster than more mature, larger companies, is also positive for the long term outlook.

    Stock picking is the key driver of portfolio composition with only those companies in which the manager has a high degree of conviction warranting a position in the portfolio. Typically the portfolio is comprised of around 200 holdings including around 10 fund holdings targeting those markets where F&C does not have dedicated in-house smaller company expertise.
