CFIC Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth
If you asked someone in the Octopus Smaller Companies team on their view of the UK smaller companies market, they are likely to tell you that it is "rife with opportunities, pregnant with profitable investments and brimming over with interesting possibilities".
This kind of enthusiasm is highly infectious, but they know what they're talking about. It's their job to pick the highly profitable but tiny companies that will one day grow into industry giants. And they do it rather well.
Take the CFIC Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth Fund. In 2011, it was the best performing fund ahead of 58 others in the IMA Smaller Companies sector. It aims to achieve capital growth by investing in a portfolio of 40 to 60 of the highest quality UK smaller companies quoted on the official list of the London Stock Exchange, AIM and PLUS Markets.
Please note that past performance is no guide to future performance. The value of an investment can go down as well as up, and you may not get back the amount you invested.
