Royal London UK strategic growth trust delivers 34 per cent in year 1

The Royal London UK strategic growth trust has delivered a one year return of 34.0 per cent since it launched on June 1, 2006, compared to an IMA UK All Sector return of 22.2 per cent, with a sixth percentile ranking.

Leigh Himsworth’s fund invests mainly in FTSE mid 250 stocks but has the capacity to invest up to 40 per cent in large cap and small cap assets as well as cash.

RLAM says this approach has been a key factor to the strong performance over the past 12 months.

Head of sales Stan Bland says: “Leigh has done a great job of managing the fund over the past year. He joined RLAM as a proven mid cap fund manager and we are delighted that he has continued to build his impressive track record with the UK strategic growth trust. We continue to see strong interest in this fund from a range of wholesale clients.”

Himsworth says: “I have been pleased with how the fund has performed over the last 12 months. I have been able to find significant opportunities to add value in both the core mid cap focus of the fund as well as the larger and smaller ends of the market cap range. I will continue to use the asset allocation parameters of the fund and my clear stock picking process to seek performance over the coming months.”
