Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently under-performed the peer group. Poor stock picking has had a material downward effect on results, which have tended to be relatively better in a rising market.
Manager profile
Mark Williams joined Liontrust in October 2011 after they bought Occam. Liontrust launched the Asia Income Fund for the team headed by Mark shortly after they joined. Mark started his career at James Capel Investment Management in 1993 after leaving Cambridge University that year with a Law Degree. He ran global investment mandates for discretionary portfolios in his four years there. In August 1997, Mark left to specialise in Asian investment at Royal Sun Alliance, and remained in the same team for 10 years, which, due to various mergers, ended up under the umbrella of F&C by 2007. During that decade, he managed a number of mandates, including benchmark-measured, investment trusts and peer group funds. In 2000, Mark took over responsibility for the FPI GIP Far East Equity SICAV and then the flagship F&C Pacific Growth Fund, later joining Occam in 2007.

Performance vs peer group composite: Mark Williams
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.
