Miton Global Opportunities – fund manager interview

Published on 1 July 2020

Miton Global Opportunities fund managers Nick Greenwood and Charlotte Cuthbertson reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on closed-end funds, highlighting some of the opportunities arising from the indiscriminate market sell-off in February and March 2020. While admitting there is ‘an element of watching paint dry’ to their investment strategy, they explain how the investment company sector is constantly reinventing itself and outline how they have been active in encouraging trust boards to unlock value for shareholders.

Miton Global Opportunities aims to achieve absolute returns (2% pa above the three-month SONIA interbank rate over the longer term), primarily by exploiting pricing inefficiencies in the closed-end funds market. A member of the Association of Investment Companies’ Flexible Investment sector, it holds a broad range of investments across traditional and alternative sectors, including listed and private equity, property and real assets, commodities and infrastructure.
