FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a long track record, the manager has, period by period, consistently managed to outperform the peer group. Stockpicking has made a contribution to results, which have tended to be similar in rising and falling markets.

Performance vs peer group composite: Jonathan Asante
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.
