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 views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. 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. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
