FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing worse than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently underformed the peer group. Poor stockpicking has had a material downward effect on results, which have tended to be relatively better in a falling market.

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.
