Schroder UK Mid Cap Fund plc

"The FTSE 250 index provides investors with exposure to a host of exciting opportunities. We can add significant value by picking dynamic mid cap companies that have the potential to grow to be included in the FTSE 100 index, which are at an interesting point in their life cycle, and/or which could ultimately prove to be attractive takeover targets."

NAV Performance

Performance over 5 years (%)


Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested

With effect from 26/01/2011 Schroder UK Mid & Small Cap Fund plc changed its name to Schroder UK Mid Cap Fund plc and changed its investment objective. In April 2011 the FTSE 250 x Investment Trusts replaced the FTSE All Share ex ITs ex FTSE 100 TR. The full track record of the previous index has been kept and chainlinked to the new one.

Some performance differences between the fund and the benchmark may arise because the fund performance is calculated at a different valuation point from the benchmark.

What are the risks?

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

The Company invests in smaller companies that may be less liquid than in larger companies and price swings may therefore be greater than investment companies that invest in larger companies.

The Company will invest solely in the companies of one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.

As a result of the fees and finance costs being charged partially to capital, the distributable income of the Company may be higher but there is the potential that performance or capital value may be eroded.

The Company may borrow money to invest in further investments, this is known as gearing. Gearing will increase returns if the value of the investments purchased increase in value by more than the cost of borrowing, or reduce returns if they fail to do so.

Investment Trust Shares

Shares in Schroders investment trusts are listed on the London Stock Exchange. Ordinary shares in each company can be bought and sold through a stockbroker, accountant, independent financial adviser or a share dealing service provided by many banks or buildings societies.

Alternatively, we have made it simple for investors to buy shares quickly and easily online through a range of UK online stockbrokers.

Please note that these websites are third-party sites and are not endorsed or recommended by Schroders. 

Sometimes shares will not be available to immediately purchase in the size of block and at the price you wish to pay.  In this case you can place a 'limit order' with your broker or platform so that the shares will be purchased when shares are available at the price you set.

We recommend you seek financial advice from an independant advisor before making an investment decision. If you don't already have one, you can find one at www.unbiased.co.uk.
