Name: Haig Bathgate

Employer: Tcam

Fund gem: James Hanbury's Odey Absolute Return fund – the fund received a lot of bad press during a difficult run in 2016 but as a longer-term bet it has been excellent. The long book has exposure to a lot of underlying companies with significant growth prospects.

Fund gem: Unsurprisingly, we have had strong performance from a number of funds in the tech/momentum space, but our hidden gem would have to be the Ardevora UK Equity fund

Name: Alex Imrie

Employer: Smith & Williamson

Fund gem: It is often appropriate from a diversification perspective to add small cap exposure to portfolios. Other investment houses can shy away from this. I like the Citywire AAA-rated team and process behind the Livingbridge UK Micro Cap fund
