MAM Funds, the investment manager that operates the Acuim, Midas and Miton-branded funds, has announced that it will be unifying all its funds under the Miton brand name, as well as launching a new small-cap fund.

This means that the following funds will have a name change this month:

MAM is also launching a new fund on Friday called the CF Miton UK Smaller Companies Fund. As the name implies, this fund will invest primarily in smaller UK companies and will be managed by Gervais Williams and Martin Turner.

“We anticipate that many of the smaller quoted stocks will be the best performers in the coming years.  The CF Miton UK Smaller Companies Fund contrasts with many others in its ability to follow a post-credit boom strategy,” said Williams.
