ASI Global Smaller Companies Class S - 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.
In the ASI Global Smaller Companies Fund, Harry Nimmo and his team hunt for smaller companies with the potential to deliver long-term capital growth. By investing globally, the fund could offer diversification to a UK focused portfolio with exposure to different regions and themes. Whilst smaller companies have more room to grow than larger ones, they do carry more risk. This fund could complement an adventurous growth-orientated portfolio investing in large or smaller companies.
Given how long Nimmo has managed funds, questions around his retirement are natural. At the moment he's still a resource for other team members, but we will review the situation whenever he does eventually decide to step back.
