Amati Global Investors is delighted to announce that they have been awarded Boutique Manager of the Year (under £1bn AUM) and highly commended for Best Specialist Small/Micro Cap Fund at Investment Week's Specialist Investment Awards 2020.
The Investment Week Specialist Investment Awards celebrate talent in less well covered or niche segments of the funds industry. They recognise managers who are true specialists in their chosen field, while highlighting boutique and passive managers providing outstanding and unique propositions to clients.
The judges commented on the Boutique Manager of the Year award that Amati had claimed the niche space of UK smaller companies and has done it through a successful flagship fund. They said it was nice to see the cross-correlation between private and public market participation. They are not afraid to continue to enhance their proposition with greater attention to ESG issues within their small-cap universe - an often overlooked consideration in the part of the market. They have also responded well with online-developments that have enabled then to continue to report and communicate well with investors.
Speaking on the highly commended award for Best Specialist Small/Micro -Cap Fund, the judges said that TB Amati UK Smaller Companies Fund is run by a hugely experienced manager and team with a strong track record. They have a good pipeline of ideas from their VCT background and have built the team well over the past couple of years. They provide consistently high alpha in the most competitive of sectors, while the fund remains relatively balanced in terms of assets and is well diversified.
