What would you like us to do with the funds you've selected
This shows the number of portfolios you hold. Portfolios can be constructed from Unit Trusts & OEICs,IMA Unit Trusts & OEICs,Investment Trusts,Pension Funds,Life Funds,Offshore Funds,Exchange Traded Funds and cash. Holdings and acquisition costs can be recorded so that profits/losses can be calculated. These can be calculated in terms of a number of base currencies. Overall portfolio values, as well as portfolio constituents, can be made the subject of alerts.
You have one watchlist, and this shows you the number of items currently stored in the watchlist. Items stored here do not have holdings records, so this list simply monitors the price of items held, which can also be subject to alerts
This is designed to be a temporary collection of items selected by you for further analysis in the tools section. Items can be subsequently transferred from the Basket to the Watchlist or Portfolio.
What type of manager are you going to back in 2015?
The fund’s investment objective is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in UK smaller companies. The fund will invest at least 80 per cent. of its assets in UK listed companies that form the bottom 10 per cent. by market capitalisation. The fund may also invest in companies which are headquartered or have significant activities in the UK which are quoted on a stock exchange outside the UK. The ACD seeks to invest in high quality smaller companies that are capable of producing shareholder value through above average growth in earnings and dividends over the medium- to long-term. The fund should benefit from holding a broadly spread portfolio of such companies which will dilute the specific risk inherent in smaller company investment. The fund will usually maintain a portfolio predominantly invested in equities. It is the intention of the ACD that transactions in derivative instruments may be entered into for efficient portfolio management purposes. Any transaction in derivatives would be undertaken on a covered basis. The borrowing powers permitted by the FCA Rules may be utilised from time to time.
The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.
Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.
Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.
The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.
Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.
Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.
All prices in Pence Sterling (GBX) unless otherwise specified. Price total return performance figures are calculated on a bid price to bid price basis (mid to mid for OEICs) with net income (dividends) reinvested. Performance figures are shown in Sterling unless otherwise specified.
As this year's performance goes from bad to worse, I was somewhat relieved to read in CityAm Paul Marriage is taking action to resolve and indeed is worthy of an award. http://www.cityam.com/1410914195/stockpickers-who-kept-steady-seismic-shiftOf course it is what I hoped but the lack of any substantive update aside from performance and holdings is very disconcerting. I contacted Schroders with my concerns but was told to speak to my broker - who have published an recent interview with Paul but the performance has worsened to new levels still. The Artemis approach of regular fund updates from their managers is exceptional in comparison.I will push Schroders through my broker and hope the reshuffling Paul has initiated bears fruit and bring this historically excellent fund back into the second or top quartile for the recent period. I have noticed in other UK smaller company funds held up rather well over the last few months so I remain positive overall on the sector.
Sorry, another mobile phone typo. That last one should of course read 'X 1,000,000,.
I typedca reply but coildn't copy the awkward security code at the end so will now try again. I wss wondering about this too so wrote an email to Cazenove whose Client Account or was it Client Services manager Stephen Gough replied very quickly by showing me where the information is on the Cazenove website. The answer is differences in minimum entry amounts: A class shares require 25,000, B 1,000 and B 1,000,000.
I think this page should say UT or OEIC at the top, right after the name of the fund and also explain somewhere what A, B and X shares are. I suppose A means retail(why nor R?) ad B means institutional(why not I?), but what on Earth is X? This really is the only industry that only thinks of themselves and does not give two hoots for their milch cows.
