FE 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 not really benefited results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Hugh graduated from the London School of Economics with a degree in Economics. He joined Gartmore in 1987 as a UK equities graduate trainee and moved to Phillips & Drew in 1990, managing UK equities throughout his twelve years there. He became Head of Smaller Companies in 1997, establishing a new team and launching the UBS Smaller Companies Fund. In March 2000 Hugh was promoted to Head of UK Equities at UBS Global Asset Management and Chairman of the UK Equities Committee. He joined Societe Generale Asset Management in 2002 where he was Head of UK Equities, manager of the Growth strategy and co-manager of the Special Opportunities Fund. Hugh was one of the founding members of River and Mercantile Asset Management, joining in August 2006. Hugh is Chief Investment Officer at River and Mercantile Asset Management and manages the UK High Alpha, UK Long Term Recovery, World Recovery and Global High Alpha strategies.

Performance vs peer group composite: Hugh Sergeant
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.
