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. Stockpicking has made a contribution to results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Chris's role includes focus on the range of corporate bond retail products. Principally, Chris is responsible for the Aviva Investors monthly income plus fund and Aviva Investors managed high income fund. Prior to joining Aviva Investors, Chris worked for Old Mutual Asset Managers as a fund manager, having joined OMAM in 2005. At Old Mutual Chris was co-manager of the Old Mutual dynamic bond fund and deputy manager of the Old Mutual corporate bond fund. Chris holds a BSc (Hons) in economics from Durham University and the investment management certificate. He is also an associate member of the UK Society of Investment Professionals (ASIP) and a CFA charterholder.

Performance vs peer group composite: Chris Higham
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.
