Investment summary

Jupiter US Smaller Companies (JUS) invests in small and mid-cap US companies with the aim of achieving long-term capital growth with capital preservation. Robert Siddles, the manager since the trust’s launch in 1993, seeks to invest in companies with strong franchises, equity-owning managements, high free cash flow and pricing power, which have experienced a period of share price weakness and offer at least 50% upside to their assessed fair value. This conservative approach means that the portfolio can underperform in periods when either high-risk stocks such as biotechnology lead, as happened in 2015, or when the market rises rapidly, as occurred last year.
