FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a fairly lengthy track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Poor stock picking has had a material downward effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
James Smith joined Premier Asset Management in 2012 and is the fund manager of the Premier Global Infrastructure Income Fund and Premier Global Infrastructure Trust, assisted by Claire Long. James joined Premier from Utilico, where he spent 14 years specialising in the global utilities, transportation infrastructure and renewable energy sectors.

Performance vs peer group composite: James Smith
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.
