Growth stocks may have outperformed value in the past 10 years but there’s still a proliferation of offerings out there. Among the funds looking for long-term gains is the £213 million L&G Growth Trust, which likes to invest in the larger end of the UK stock market, prefering companies worth £1.8 billion or more.

But it can still dip its toe into the Alternative Investment Market, with the likes of ASOS (ASC) and Boohoo (BOO), capitalised at £5 billion and £2 billion respectively, in the portfolio, though no room for the £4 billion run-away success FeverTree Drinks (FEVR).
