Objectives and Approach

Franklin UK Smaller Companies Fund (the "Fund”) aims to increase the value of its investments by more than the return of the Numis Smaller Companies ex-Investment Trusts Index over the medium to long term (meaning 3-5 years).  The Fund invests mainly in:equity securities from smaller UK-listed companies that have a market value no greater than the largest company in the HGSC Index and are traded on markets regulated by a government body. The Fund can invest to a lesser extent in:equity securities of smaller companies listed outside the UKUsing detailed fundamental company research the investment management team aim to invest in a diversified portfolio of small UK companies that in their view offer the potential for attractive rates of earnings growth irrespective of economic conditions.

        Important Information
        Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertently become exposed to an undesirable level of risk to your capital. Some funds carry a dilution levy which reduces the number of units realised on any initial investment as an initial charge. If this fund carries such a levy it should be detailed in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), which we must provide and you should read before investing.

        The charts and performance data shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to precede the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historical data has been synthesised at the entire discretion of that external provider as realistically as possible using historical data recorded against the previously available commission-paying version of the fund, adjusting for fees in the process.
