Invesco Perpetual fund manager Mark Barnett runs a lot of cash. When taking over management of the Invesco Perpetual High Income, Invesco Perpetual Income and Edinburgh Trust (EDIN) from Neil Woodford earlier this year, Barnett boosted his book by £21 billion.

Barnett already ran Perpetual Income & Growth (PLI) and Keystone Investment Trust (KIT), responsibilities he has retained, boosting the total assets under the management of Barnett to a cool £22 billion.

The sheer size of these combined portfolios have led to Morningstar analysts downgrading Barnett’s open and closed-end funds, at least until he has proved capable of running such a large amount of money. Going from £1.1 billion responsibility to twenty times that takes some adjustment.
