Funds always tend to be categorised nowadays with labels such as Growth, Value, Quality and Recovery, but we think the perfect way to describe Majedie UK Income managed by Chris Reid is as an ‘Improvement Fund’. In the manager’s own words: “This is a conviction based active stock-picking fund that through detailed analysis and experience is looking to find companies that have settled on a course of massive improvement and, in doing so, leapfrog their competitors.”

“Philosophy aside, from our perspective, it is the depth and granular detail of analysis that underpins the appeal of this fund. However, when you set about running a fund in a fairly distinctive way compared to your direct competitors – as Chris Reid has – you take on board the risk/opportunity of potentially generating outsized relative returns.
