FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a fairly lengthy track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently managed to outperform the peer group. Good stockpicking has had a material positive impact on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.

Matthew graduated BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences (Psychology) from Cambridge University in 2000 and holds a PhD in Psychology from Bristol University. He joined Baillie Gifford in September 2003 and is an Investment Manager in the Japanese Equity Team. Matthew is a CFA charter holder

Performance vs peer group composite: Matthew Brett
How a manager matches up against his peers gives you some idea of how talented he is. 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.
