About abrdn UK Smaller Companies Growth Trust plc

The trust looks to capture the long term growth potential of UK Smaller Companies, through a diversified portfolio of companies the managers believe have the potential to be the large cap leaders of tomorrow. The process is unchanged since the 1990s and has been tried and tested through various economic cycles, with the managers investing in companies that have attractive quality, growth and momentum characteristics. To aid the process, the managers use our in-house quantitative tool known as the MATRIX, which helps screen the universe and focus research on the most interesting opportunities.

We see the company as a potentially attractive option for those looking to access this dynamic, under-researched asset class, offering the prospect of attractive long term term returns, as well as diversification benefits for those with more large cap focussed exposure. It has delivered dividend growth over the years consistently, as well as capital growth, and currently sits at an attractive discount.

How it works: Abby Glennie will provide insight into what she looks for when making investment decisions and what companies should be focusing on to attract more investment. A Q&A discussion will then follow where company directors have the opportunity at any stage to ask questions in a Chatham House rule environment.

This event is for Board Directors of Quoted Companies.
