Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. However, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, over- and under-performed roughly equally. stock picking has not really benefited results, which have tended to be relatively better in a rising market.
Manager profile
Matthew is responsible for managing the Global Emerging Markets Unconstrained SICAV, and will also be one of the portfolio managers of the Enhanced Diversification GEM Fund. Matthew is also responsible for researching Autos, Industrials and Telecommunications within the Global Emerging Markets.

Performance vs peer group composite: Matthew 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.
