Campbell says: "The literature is clear and provides the information that an experienced investor would be looking for," while Chitroda says: "I think the literature is catchy – indeed very colourful and attractive. The language used is nice and clear. I must admit, even I was tempted to invest after going through the brochure. Some of the companys other rivals could learn from Old Mutuals marketing and design team."
Summing up, Bloom says: "We like this fund and think that it could have a good start. However smaller company investment is about shoe leather and old-fashioned research. Bradbury has other jobs to do at Old Mutual and there are only so many hours in the day, although he assures me he is on top of this."
