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. There is not sufficient data to say whether good stockpicking has had any real effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Graham Ashby, Manager of the Santander UK Growth, N&P UK Growth Funds and Santander Premium UK Equity Fund, has 24 years’ experience of equity fund investments and held several fund manager roles over this time. Prior to joining Santander Asset Management UK, Graham was Head of UK Equities at Ignis Asset Management. He is a bottom-up stock picker who invests across the market capitalisation spectrum, principally in companies with a proven track record of creating value for shareholders. He adopts a disciplined approach to portfolio construction with the aim of taking an appropriate level of risk to achieve outperformance targets. Prior to his role at Ignis, Graham held senior equity positions at LV=Asset Management and Credit Suisse Asset Management.

Performance vs peer group composite: Graham Ashby
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.
