Fund Objective

The CFIC Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth Fund aims to achieve capital growth by investing in a portfolio of 40–70 high-quality UK smaller companies quoted on the Official List of the main market of the London Stock Exchange, AIM and ISDX markets. Over 70% of quoted UK companies have a market value of less than £100 million, and in comparison with larger companies, this is a relatively underresearched area of the UK market. We believe that this smaller end of the market is becoming increasingly inefficient, providing the opportunity to invest in fast-growing companies at attractive valuations which have the potential to offer investors substantial upside.
