FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a long track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Poor stockpicking has had a material downward effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.

Performance vs peer group composite: Alan Rowsell
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.
