Professional investor Charlotte Cuthbertson picks three stocks that exploit mispricings in the investment trust world.

A professional investor tells us where she'd put her money. This week: Charlotte Cuthbertson, assistant fund manager, Miton Global Opportunities.

Over recent months we have seen value building as progress is being made at the net asset value (NAV) level but share prices have failed to keep up.
