Our view on this Fund
This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you are thinking of adding to your investments we believe Wealth 50 funds are superior alternatives. View funds on the Wealth 50 »
This fund tries to grow your money by investing in UK companies that have been overlooked and underappreciated by others. It's managed by Richard Buxton, a talented fund manager with plenty of experience investing in the UK. Plus he's got the support of a strong, well-resourced team.
The fund can be more volatile than the broader UK stock market because the manager tends to invest in relatively few companies. This means each can make a significant contribution to performance although it's a higher-risk approach. Overall Richard Buxton has done a good job for long-term investors but there's no guarantee his past success will be repeated.
We currently have higher conviction in other funds that invest in the UK. You can find our favourites on the Wealth 50.
