All calculations are in GBP unless stated

Managed by

Paul Smith

Paul Smith is head of fixed income for Premier Asset Management. He joined Premier in 2005 and is fund manager of the Premier Defensive Growth Fund, the Premier Corporate Bond Monthly Income Fund, the Premier Strategic High Income Bond, and the Premier UK Money Market Fund. Paul has a First Class BA (Hons) degree in economics, and an MA in finance and investment (with Distinction) from Exeter University.


The Fund aims to generate positive returns over a rolling 36 months basis. The Fund will seek to achieve a return in excess of cash deposits by principally investing in a combination of transferable securities (including quoted securities, unquoted securities and zero dividend preference shares) and structured products which, in the Investment Adviser's opinion, are likely to offer the opportunity of returns in excess of cash deposits but with lower volatility than would normally be associated with investing in equity markets. The Fund may also invest in fixed income securities, money market instruments, warrants, bonds, deposits, cash and near cash, and regulated collective investment schemes.
