BlackRock Throgmorton Trust (THRG) – Bronze

David Holder

BlackRock Throgmorton Trust has successfully navigated into a new era under the sole management of the impressive Dan Whitestone following the retirement of the seasoned Mike Prentis. The appointment of Whitestone as sole manager has been seamless and a sensible development as is the broadening out of investment flexibility to bring more alignment with Whitestone’s Hedge Fund. The levers available to him here make him well placed to make use of the broad range of tools and the wide opportunity set available. Our conviction has grown sufficiently to award the trust a Morningstar Analyst rating of Bronze from Neutral. 

Legg Mason WA Asian Opportunities – Bronze
