Important information - The value of this fund can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invested, especially over the short term. The information shown is not personal advice, if you are at all unsure of the suitability of an investment for your circumstances please contact us for personal advice. The HL Select UK Growth Shares Fund is managed by our sister company HL Fund Managers Ltd.
What is HL Select UK Growth Shares?
This fund contains shares in high-quality companies in the UK. Home of some of the highest quality international companies, and diverse array of smaller businesses, the UK stock market presents fund managers with a variety of opportunities to help grow your investment. We might invest in higher-risk smaller companies where we see excellent growth potential. Because of our dedication to finding high-quality large, medium, and small companies, the fund will typically hold less companies than other funds. This way each investment will have a greater impact when things go well. But this does work both ways, making it higher risk.
In all HL Select funds, our experts have carefully selected a small number of financially strong companies. Across at least the next five years, we think these companies will grow your investment through delivering exceptional products or services. Although, like all investments the value of the fund will go up and down, so you could get back less than you invest. With monthly emails and our HL Select blog, you can see every stock in each fund, have visibility of every investment decision we make, and a clear explanation of why it’s been chosen.

The investment strategy
We’re looking for a virtuous circle of growth.
If a business can keep growing reliably, compounding over a long time, it can increase its value many times over. Companies with fantastic products or services that are hard to copy generally have high profit margins and strong cash flows. This allows forward-thinking CEOs to keep debt low, ride out economic or political storms, re-invest back into their business and keep growing year after year.
We want to find these companies, wherever in the UK they are. We’ll then hold on to them for as long as they keep doing it.
