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. stock picking has made a contribution to results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
George Cooke graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2005 with an undergraduate degree in Management Studies. He then spent another year of study there at the end of which he was awarded a Masters (with Distinction) in Corporate Strategy & Governance.Immediately following this, he joined the graduate scheme at Aon Benfield (formerly Aon Re). Having completed this scheme, George settled as an analyst within the ReSolutions department, where he specialised in assisting with the capital and runoff issues of insurance and reinsurance companies. During his time at the company, George received a Diploma in Insurance and passed all three levels of the CFA. After three and a half years with Aon Benfield, George joined Montanaro in July 2010.

Performance vs peer group composite: George Cooke
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.
