Schroder Mid Cap (SCP) has been a good long term holding, and I bought some for my son’s JISA a few years back - so hope performance holds up. The trust is one of Money Observers Rated trusts.

Recent performance has lagged JP Morgan Mid Cap (JMF) though, so I would consider that as a better alternative currently (has similar charges and yield).


The mid cap area of the stock market is looking rather over valued at present. I think there’s more opportunities in the smaller cap area and maybe the mega caps for once too.

If I held this I would switch to something else.
