How to invest: three tweet-sized fund options

  1. Hermes US SMID Equity: invests in smaller and medium-sized companies that would benefit the most from a corporate tax cut.

  3. AXA Framlington American Growth: has a bias towards mid-caps and performs well when the US market is in a growth phase.

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.
