We believe CF Lindsell Train UK Equity benefits from the stewardship of an immensely talented UK equity manager.

Nick Train is an experienced, talented and pragmatic manager who has run this fund since launch. He has three decades of expertise, which cover a number of market cycles. He started his career as an investment manager at GT Management in 1981 and established Lindsell Train in 2000 together with his colleague Michael Lindsell. Train was appointed soon afterwards to run Finsbury Growth and Income, a closed-end fund managed to the same mandate as this fund. 

Train's process is thorough and well-proven over a number of market cycles and supports our conviction in the fund. It's an approach that's been applied consistently over the years and results in a concentrated portfolio. Train selects companies from the bottom up and looks for unique and strong franchises that can prosper through a number of business cycles. He sells a stock only if he no longer considers it of sufficient quality, or when its growth in value causes it to become too large a proportion of the portfolio, at which point he will trim it.
