FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has underperformed the peer group more often than not. Stockpicking has not really benefited results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
After graduating from the University of Liverpool in 1970 with a degree in Computational and Statistical Science, Richard worked briefly as a computer consultant at Arthur Andersen before moving to the City in 1972. From 1975 he worked at Carr Sebag with private clients, moving with the business to Grieveson Grant and then Kleinwort Benson in 1986. From 1991 he was head of UK Active Management and Equity Research, being responsible for both institutional and retail portfolios. Richard joined AXA Framlington in March 1994 where he is responsible for the management of a number of pension funds and unit trusts.

Performance vs peer group composite: Richard Peirson
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.
