Miton managers confirm move to Polar Capital

Following the announcement last week that George Godber and Georgina Hamilton, managers of the Miton UK Value Opportunities and Miton Undervalued Assets funds, had handed in their resignation at Miton, it has now been confirmed that they will be moving to Polar Capital, the boutique asset management house.

Polar Capital, which has two Elite Rated funds, Global Insurance and Healthcare Opportunities, has also announced plans to recruit up to three further fund management teams.

Commenting on the recruitment spree, the company said: “We have spent a number of years building up our operational support structure within Polar Capital and this now means we have the necessary resource to offer additional teams the highest level of support, whilst maintaining the culture of our group.”

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
