Portfolio details

Number of positions >200. Around one-third of the portfolio is kept within liquid issues. The portfolio may also carry a strong bias to AiM listed companies. Cash may be used as a defensive measure.


Position sizes are typically below 2%, never more than 3%. The focus is on companies with a market cap of >£100m.
The portfolio usually has very little commonality with the benchmark and so performance can be expected to differ markedly on occasions.
