“Speed dating” with five fund managers

Our annual speed dating event is a lot like speed dating. Seven journalists get around seven minutes per fund manager, to ask what they like before moving on. With this in mind we took our seven minutes to learn a little bit more about the fund managers from worst jobs to greatest achievements, from dinner party guests to what would you bring to a desert island and so much more!

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.
