Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a fairly lengthy 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
Ben was born in 1979 and graduated in 2002 from Trinity College, Cambridge with a degree in Economics. He joined the graduate program of Deutsche Bank in London and specialised in Japanese equities having spent his gap year teaching English with Project Trust in rural Japan. He moved to Merrill Lynch in 2004, where he became a Director of Japanese Equities. In 2008 Ben left the City and moved to Sydney to help start-up an energy consultancy with two close friends. Having enjoyed Australia’s more laid back lifestyle for 2 years, Ben returned to the UK, relocating to the South West and joining Hawksmoor in July 2010. He has worked on the Fund Management team since 2011 and been a co-manager of the Vanbrugh, Distribution and Global Opportunities Funds since January 2014. In the Autumn of 2018 he was appointed a Director of Hawksmoor Investment Management Limited and co-Head of the Fund Management Team.

Performance vs peer group composite: Ben Conway
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.
