FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently managed to outperform the peer group. Poor stock picking has had a material downward effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
David joined Premier in May 2006 and currently co-manages a number of discretionary Multi-Asset portfolios. He has research responsibility for the Fixed Interest, European equity, Property and Absolute Return sectors. Previously, David worked for several years as an Investment Analyst before becoming an Investment Manager in 2004, with responsibility for five discretionary multi-manager portfolios. He has a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bristol, holds the IMC and has completed the Certificate in Financial Planning.

Performance vs peer group composite: David Thornton
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.
