The Heriot Global Smaller Companies Fund

Manager Overview – Dundas Global Investors

Where dividends go, share prices follow.

Founded in 2010, Dundas Global Investors are an independent global equity investment specialist. The team manage over £1.9bn in global equities for UK clients and institutional clients in Australia and the USA.

The firm’s philosophy is based on the premise that long term total returns can be largely attributed to dividend growth and dividend yield. The power of dividend growth and reinvestment lift an acceptable capital return into an excellent long-term return, well ahead of inflation.

The Heriot Global Fund and The Heriot Global Smaller Companies Fund are the UK UCITS vehicles.
