In the latest Big Debate, our panelists from Guinness Asset Management and SVG Investment Managers discussed Funds To Watch.
Academic, and empirical research says that investors often achieve the best returns from small, growing funds because the managers can be nimble and their ideas are not easily copied by bigger investors. But many advisers will not look at funds until they have at least 3 year track records and assets of £100m, so they miss this ‘gems.' This week's debate talks to managers of small, but nimble funds which all offer a unique approach to some key investment markets and themes.
