Media Release: Colonial First State Developing Companies Fund wins Smart Investor Blue Ribbon Award for Best Australian Small Cap fund
The Colonial First State Developing Companies Fund (the Fund) has been named the Best Australian Small Cap Fund at the 2016 Financial Review Smart Investor Blue Ribbon Awards.
The Smart Investor Blue Ribbon Awards judges said: "Colonial First State Developing Companies Fund is run by a savvy duo in Tim Canham and Wik Farwerck. They focus on companies outside the top 200 that have an ability to generate sustainable returns and reinvest above their cost of capital.
