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 tended to be relatively better in a rising market.

Performance vs peer group composite: Joanne Warner
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.
