Schroder US Mid Cap manager to retire

Schroders has announced that, after more than 16 years at Schroders and an investment career spanning nearly four decades, Jenny Jones, fund manager of Schroder US Mid Cap has decided to retire later this year.

Bob Kaynor, currently co-manager of the fund, will take over full responsibility in April 2019. Bob has more than 20 years investment experience, six of which have been at Schroders.

Darius McDermott, managing director of FundCalibre, commented: “Jenny Jones is a well-known investor. She has built a strong team and this manager change is a very good example of long-term secession planning, as Bob has been co-manager for several years.

“We wish Jenny all the best and Schroder US Mid Cap fund will remain Elite Rated.”

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
