ASI Global Smaller Companies Inclusive - Class R - Accumulation (GBP)
Our view on this Fund
This fund is on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. However, this is not a recommendation to buy.
Alan Rowsell looks for innovative smaller companies from across the globe. Smaller companies are capable of strong performance and some will blossom into the household names of tomorrow. Not all will succeed though and smaller companies are higher risk than larger firms. He's performed well over the years, though the fund's been through periods when it's performed similarly to its benchmark for several years.
There are currently other managers in the Global sector with longer track records that we rate more highly. This fund's also more expensive.
