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

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.
