Schroder Small Cap Discovery Class Z - 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.
This fund gives you access to some of the world's most innovative businesses. It focuses on smaller companies that are based in Asian and emerging markets, or make most of their money there. These companies are overlooked by a lot of investors, so it provides an opportunity for Matthew Dobbs and Richard Sennitt to scour the market and find some hidden gems. They have a lot of experience investing in these markets.
We like that this fund offers something different to other Asian and emerging markets funds, which tend to have a bigger focus on larger companies. We think combining exposure to smaller businesses with the long-term growth potential of these markets is an exciting prospect. Smaller companies and emerging markets are higher risk though, so a long-term outlook is essential.
