Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Good stock picking has had a material positive impact on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Philip is Co-Head of Multi-Asset Growth at Ninety One. He is also co-portfolio manager for the Global Strategic Managed and Risk Managed strategies, and has macro focussed research responsibilities.

Performance vs peer group composite: Philip Saunders
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.
