MERIAN UK SMALLER COMPANIES FUND AND MERIAN UK MID CAP FUND

The MGI s/mid cap team has a 20% share of the active s/mid market. It enjoys a relative information bias versus peers, given its size, scale and industry reach in a market where the opportunity set is huge.

UK s/mid caps have an average of three analysts per stock while 22 cover each large-cap company.

DIVERSE UNIVERSE

It provides a rich hunting ground of stocks and sectors.

HUGE OPPORTUNITY

Share price anomalies are more prevalent and active managers can take advantage of this.

OUTPERFORMED THEIR LARGER PEERS

Over the long-term, s/mid caps have outperformed large caps and consistently delivered higher rates of earnings growth.

DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE

The team adjusts its portfolios’ exposure to domestically focused businesses versus internationals to take advantage of market conditions.

KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE

Dan Nickols has managed the small cap fund since 2004.

Richard Watts has managed the mid cap fund since 2009.
