The Artemis UK Special Situations Fund aims to achieve superior long-term growth by looking for unrecognised growth potential in companies, often those that are unloved or out-of-favour.

  • Unrecognised opportunities: ‘special situations’ are companies that are in recovery, need re-financing or are suffering from investor indifference. The managers view ‘problem investments’ as potential opportunities and look for hidden value. They often have the potential to deliver significant capital growth.
  • Favours smaller and medium-sized companies: because these companies are often under-researched by the broader investment community, detailed research in this area of the market can identify growth opportunities and valuation anomalies.
  • Meeting management: personal knowledge of management teams aids the managers’ understanding of what might be achieved by the companies in which they invest. A direct match of the interests of company management and its shareholders is an important consideration.
  • Flexible approach: the managers are free to invest across the range of company sizes, allowing them to select only those stocks which they feel offer strong capital growth potential. The fund typically holds 60-70 stocks.
  • Experienced team: managers Derek Stuart and Andy Gray have many years’ investment experience between them. Derek is a co-founder of Artemis and has managed the fund since its launch in March 2000.
