Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. However, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, over- and under-performed roughly equally. There is not sufficient data to say whether good stock picking has had any real effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Our multi-asset investing team contains more than 40 highly talented and accomplished investment professionals with an average of over 15 years’ industry experience. Overall, the team incorporates three key areas. Strategic research is headed by Andrew Milligan, who has over 35 years’ industry experience. It is responsible for developing themes behind our strategies and seeks the investment rationale in which a strategy will perform. Multi-asset management is headed by Guy Stern, who has over 30 years’ industry experience and is responsible for identifying, developing and implementing strategies and manages the Fund on a day-to-day basis. Finally, risk analysis is headed by Brian Fleming, a multi-asset risk expert with over 10 years’ industry experience. Brian is responsible for risk and structuring within multi-asset investing and provides quantitative discipline to the qualitative fund management process. These three areas provide a critical combination of skill and experience, working together to ensure the best strategies are in place

Performance vs peer group composite: Multi Asset Investing Team
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.
