FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Good stockpicking has had a material positive impact on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Harry graduated with an MBA from the University of Edinburgh in 1984, joining Standard Life as an Investment Analyst with responsibility for UK equity funds in 1985. He became Senior Investment Analyst with sector responsibility for larger UK-quoted company funds in 1990, and Investment Manager in 1993 responsible for the UK equity smaller (quoted) company funds. Harry has been managing our UK Smaller Companies Fund since its launch in January 1997.

Performance vs peer group composite: Harry Nimmo
How a manager matches up against his peers gives you some idea of how talented he is. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
