Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a long 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.

Performance vs peer group composite: Nick Ford
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.
