TM CRUX UK Smaller Companies Fund
The investment objective of the TM CRUX UK Smaller Companies Fund is to achieve long-term growth, over a rolling 5-year period, net of all fees and expenses, through both capital appreciation and income generation.
The TM CRUX UK Smaller Companies Fund is a bottom-up fund that invests within the small cap, including AIM section of the market. The Funds investment philosophy is based around the following principles:
- Trilogy of Growth
- Fundamentally (value) driven investment
- Fund manager co-invested on the same terms as the investors
- Targeting distressed long-term growth sectors.
We believe over time these principles will provide sources of alpha, contributing to returns allowing the opportunity to find companies that fit the TM CRUX UK Smaller Companies Fund process.

Fund Objectives and Investment Policy
The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth, which should be viewed as 5 years or longer.
The Fund aims to achieve the investment objective by investing at least 75% in shares of smaller companies that are domiciled, incorporated in the UK or have significant exposure to the UK.
Within this 75% the Investment Manager selects from the lowest 10% of the listed UK stock market
(by market capitalisation, monitored quarterly).
The Fund targets companies with improving growth in revenues or profits where the companies are considered undervalued. This may include companies that are going through specific transactional activities such as financing acquisitions or providing rescue financing for companies. Investment opportunities are also sought from changes of management and business strategy.
The Fund may also invest up to 25% in companies with a market capitalisation above the bottom 10% of listed company shares in the UK or other geographical regions such as Europe and the USA, other collective investment vehicles (which may include those that are managed or operated by the ACD or the Investment Manager), warrants, cash and cash-equivalent investments.
