Small Companies

The Appian Small Companies Opportunities Fund (a sub-fund of the Appian Unit Trust) invests in a concentrated portfolio of high quality publicly quoted stocks with a market capitalisation of €100m to €4billion. Small Companies have been shown to consistently outperform broader equity markets over the long term, but with a higher degree of volatility. We invest in companies with proven management, low levels of gearing and strong easily understood business models. This fund has no entry, exit or performance fees and performance figures are shown net of all annual management fees.
