FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. However, 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.

Performance vs peer group composite: Neil Robson
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.
