Risks to bear in mind
Capital at risk
The value of an investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest. Please read the prospectus and the Key Investor Information Document when considering one of our funds.
Smaller company share prices can be more volatile
Investments in smaller company shares are likely to fall and rise in value more than shares in larger, more established companies listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell.

Reasons to invest
Smaller companies grow faster
That means share prices have a better chance of increasing at a faster rate over the long term.
Smaller companies behave differently to larger ones. They tend to be more nimble and so can take advantage of new opportunities quickly.
Invest ahead of the mainstream
An investment team that specialises in smaller company investing can find undiscovered value across the AIM spectrum.
