Manager profile
Stephen is the lead manager of the WS Blue Whale Growth Fund and the Blue Whale Growth Fund (ICAV).

Having worked at New Star (now Janus Henderson), Artemis, and under Martin Taylor at Nevsky Capital, Stephen has gained broad and varied experience within the investment industry. Stephen set up his own fund management business in 2017 with a £25m backing from Peter Hargreaves, the co-founder of Hargreaves Lansdown. The firm's flagship WS Blue Whale Growth Fund has grown to manage over £1bn in assets and was voted Best Fund of 2020 at the Shares Magazine Awards.

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.
