Best ideas plan for MAM Funds

  • Comments (1)

MAM Funds managing director Gervais Williams is planning to launch a best ideas income product for the firm.

Williams is currently running a £44m diverse income trust and £7.8m Acuim UK multi-cap income fund with fund manager Martin Turner.

He says: “We would like to introduce a multi-cap product with a narrower focus to offer a higher rate of return, albeit with more volatility. We have 100 holdings in our other income funds and this would have 20 to 25 holdings. A new fund may be the best way forward but it may end up being a bespoke portfolio because you cannot buy the same concentrated portfolio for many clients as you could run out of stock with some of the smaller companies.”

The product would be positioned under the Acuim brand, which was launched earlier this year for single-strategy offerings.

Williams adds that he would also like to expand the company’s multi-asset range.

Bestinvest senior analyst Ben Seager-Scott says: “Income is a major theme and taking a multi-cap approach can have the advantage of diversifying away from the income concentration you get at the top of the FTSE.”

  • Gervais here is an IDEA explain how the share price of mam funds has increased from 18.5 to 22.5 after a modest 7000+ trades and the purchase of three quarters of a million shares by two directors when the share price hardly flickered . ONE director purchased over half a million of them - IS THERE A CHARMED market maker for your Directors because "you" as an ordinary investor will not get a quote for such a quantity .


    you wish to manage 5billion pounds worth OF funds ? best wishes ask your directors to explain
    who they bought the shares from.
    ALSO update your website from 11 october 2011 it took you long enough to change the laughable 31 december 2011 funds under management figure which you had on your site during november and december 2011.
