    I’ve starting following the small cap selections and musings of Harry Nimmo since the excellent Standard Life UK Smaller Companies Trust AGM write-up by ShareSoc’s Roger Lawson.

    Nimmo has a terrific track record with interesting growth stocks, and doesn’t mind paying for growth. As someone who is very ‘time poor’ lately, he’s one of a few managers whose ideas I’m pleased to research further (I’d include the Liontrust team in that subset).

    I’ve started an SLS thread on ADVFN if you wish to monitor the trust’s holdings in future.

    All the best,
