RLAM hopes the name change will allow it to be compared to the similar mid-cap funds within the IMA UK All Companies sector.
By principally investing in companies that comprise the FTSE mid 250 index, the fund will continue to target capital growth over the medium to long term.
Since it’s launch in 2006, the fund has had strong relative returns and outperformed its UK All Companies peer group by 19.67 per cent and 8.31 per cent p.a. over one and three years.
Fund manager Leigh Himsworth says: “In the three years since the fund launched we have experienced some truly historic market movements. I have always tried to look through the short-term market noise to assess fundamental value and identify unappreciated growth opportunities in the diversified mid cap arena. The name of the fund is changing but I will be maintaining the same, high conviction approach to stock selection as I look to deliver solid, sustainable returns over the medium term.”
