FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. However, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, over- and under-performed roughly equally. Stockpicking has made a contribution to results, which have tended to be relatively better in a falling market.
Manager profile
Mark is the Lead Manager of our Small Cap strategy, having joined Somerset in 2007. Previously he worked at Lloyd George Management, where he was instrumental in helping to build the smaller companies product along with Edward Robertson and Jacob Rees-Mogg. He also had a focus on Latin America. Mark graduated from St Andrew’s University prior to joining Lloyd George Management in 2001.

Performance vs peer group composite: Mark Asquith
How a manager matches up against their peers gives you some idea of how talented they are. 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.
