Company Presentation – Downing Strategic Micro-Cap Investment Trust

The Downing Strategic Micro-Cap Investment Trust seeks to provide investors with long-term capital growth through a concentrated portfolio of UK listed companies, typically with a market capitalisation below £150 million. Its UK fund managers Judith MacKenzie and Nick Hawthorn intend to take influential positions in businesses believed to be undervalued and that could benefit from strategic and operational initiatives to drive performance and unlock shareholder value.
