Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has under-performed the peer group more often than not. 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
Gareth joined Polar Capital in 2007 to set up the healthcare team. He has over 21 years’ investment experience in the healthcare sector, with 14 years as a Portfolio Manager. Prior to Polar Capital, Gareth worked at Framlington, where he began his career in investment management in 1999. Soon afterwards, he joined the Healthcare Team in 2001 and helped launch the Framlington Biotech Fund, which he managed from 2004 until his departure. Gareth studied biochemistry at Oxford, during which time he worked at Yamanouchi, a leading Japanese pharmaceutical company (later to become Astellas), as well as various academic laboratories including the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research and Oxford Business School. He is a CFA charterholder.

Performance vs peer group composite: Gareth Powell
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.
