FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. However, over a long track record, the manager has underperformed the peer group more often than not. Poor stockpicking has had a material downward effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Douglas Lawson co-founded Amati Global Investors with Paul Jourdan. Prior to this he worked in corporate finance and private equity, initially focusing on middle market UK private equity and listed company M&A at British Linen Advisors, and latterly as an investment manager in the private equity team at Noble. Douglas has co-managed the TB Amati UK Smaller Companies Fund and Amati VCT since 2009, and Amati VCT 2 since 2010. Douglas started his career at Ernst & Young in London, where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2002. He is a Director of Amati.

Performance vs peer group composite: Douglas Lawson
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.
