New Guernsey fund to focus on UK smaller companies and value

24 March 2015

Guernsey-based MitonOptimal International has launched a new fund focused on investing into UK smaller companies and value opportunities.

The MitonOptimal UK Select Fund is a Guernsey domiciled open-ended fund of funds which combines the Miton Group's award-winning CF Miton UK Smaller Companies and CF Miton UK Value Opportunities funds. Both underlying UCITS funds have delivered significant performance and attracted positive reviews since their respective launches in December 2012 and March 2013.

Scott Campbell, Managing Director of MitonOptimal, said: "The MitonOptimal UK Select Fund offers international investors an innovative way to invest into the UK stockmarket. Gervais Williams, award-winning manager of the CF Miton UK Smaller Companies Fund, believes smaller companies will deliver some of the best investment returns in the coming years and decades. George Godber and Georgina Hamilton are two of the rising stars in UK fund management. Their rigorous approach to sound financial backing in search of value helps ensure the blend of these two funds is highly complementary, and well positioned to deliver exciting returns."

"We've enjoyed a long business relationship with the Miton Group Plc and are delighted to continue to work together with them for our clients' benefit."

Gervais Williams, Managing Director of Miton Group Plc, said: "A blend of our UK small cap and UK Value strategies presents a compelling proposition for investors, providing access to the full range of UK equities from the FTSE AIM Index to the FTSE 100 through a genuinely active investment management approach."
