FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a long 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.

Performance vs peer group composite: Adrian Brass
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.
