Standard Life UK Smaller Companies Trust Company Background

Sector Equity Investment Instruments
Activities Standard Life UK Smaller Companies Trust plc's objective is to achieve long-term capital growth by investment in UK-quoted smaller companies. The Company intends to achieve its investment objective by investing in a diversified portfolio consisting mainly of UK-quoted smaller companies. The portfolio will normally comprise around 50 individual holdings representing Standard Life Investments (Corporate Funds) Limited's highest conviction investment ideas. In order to reduce risk in the Company without compromising flexibility, no holding within the portfolio should exceed 5% of total assets at the time of acquisition. The Company may use derivatives for portfolio hedging purposes (i.e. only for the purpose of reducing, transferring or eliminating the investment risks in its investments in order to protect the Company's portfolio).
