This year has already seen a number of high-profile UK fund managers move on. The longest-serving of these managers is Nigel Thomas, who will be stepping down from Axa Framlington UK Select Opportunities at the end of this year after 40 years in the asset management industry. Another industry veteran, Alice Gaskell, handed over to Andreas Zoellinger at the helm of BlackRock Continental European Income Fund.

Morningstar analysts consider a fund's process, price, parent, people and performance following a fund manager exit -if any of these elements change it results in a reassessment of the credentials.
