FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently managed to outperform the peer group. Good stockpicking has had a material positive impact on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Daniel Nickols joined OMGI in 2001 following the integration of Gerrard Investment Funds, prior to which he worked at Gerrard for two years. He was appointed to his current role in January 2009. His involvement with smaller companies began in September 1995, when he joined Albert E Sharp as a specialist salesman. He switched from the sell side to the buy side in May 1997, working on the Albert E Sharp Smaller Companies Fund. After graduating from Cambridge University in 1992 with an BA in Modern and Medieval Languages, he joined Deloitte & Touche, before moving to the European equities division of Morgan Stanley in June 1994. He is an Associate of the Institute of Investment Management & Research.

Performance vs peer group composite: Daniel Nickols
How a manager matches up against their peers gives you some idea of how talented they are. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
