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. Good stock picking has had a material positive impact on results, which have tended to be relatively better in a falling market.

Sebastian manages the Trojan Fund, Trojan Feeder Fund and is investment adviser to Personal Assets Trust. He established Troy Asset Management in 2000. Before establishing Troy Asset Management, Sebastian was a Director at Stanhope Investment Management (the management company for the GEC Pension Fund) where he jointly managed a £2 billion equity portfolio and was also responsible for asset allocation.

Performance vs peer group composite: Sebastian Lyon
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.
