Specialist asset management in UK small-cap and multi-cap equities

Our highly experienced team here at Canaccord Genuity Asset Management (CGAM) provide UK small-cap and European (including UK) multi-cap asset management expertise as a specialist, outsourced provider to the industry.

If you are a private client and would like to know more about investing in UK small-caps with Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, please click here.

CGAM's most significant mandate is in support of Marlborough Fund Management. We have a long-standing relationship and run several of their funds, including some of their UK small-cap and multi-cap investment strategies. We help to offer more breadth in terms of markets, asset classes and investment styles for their clients, while Marlborough's in-house specialists handle all the administrative, sales and marketing functions for their funds.

This is a particularly niche and higher risk area of asset management and so outsourcing specialist UK small-cap and mid-cap stock selection and asset management can be an ideal and cost-effective solution. By leaving our experts at Canaccord Genuity Asset Management to focus on identifying investment opportunities and managing investment performance, allows Marlborough to concentrate on servicing their clients’ needs to achieve better client retention and share of wallet.

Risks specific to VCTs: VCTs will invest in small, high-risk companies. These qualifying companies may have volatile share prices and the investments may be difficult to realise.

Investments in smaller companies, including AIM stocks, carry a higher degree of risk than investing in more liquid shares of larger companies, so they may be difficult to sell at the time you choose. Investments in smaller companies are more volatile and, while they can offer great potential, growth is not guaranteed.
