This year, as well as the annual quant awards, we are awarding our inaugural UK Equity Fund Manager of the Year award.  This award is based entirely on the work of the UK Fund Research analyst team and recognises one fund manager who had a strong 2009, but whom we also believe will do well for investors in the long term and who has shown himself or herself to be a good steward of investors’ capital.

2009 provided our staff with something of a conundrum. On the one hand, after two horrendous years of markets roiled by the credit crisis, investors finally saw a strong rally that helped them claw back some of their losses. On the other, the rally was led by lower-quality, speculative issues. Hence, the funds that did best were often those that took the most risk. While that happens to have worked well last year, it’s rarely a strategy for sustained success and our own research has shown that investors often misuse higher-risk offerings, buying after runs and selling after downturns.

Our analyst team vigorously debated the pool of nominated managers and we’re confident in saying that we believe them to be among the very best and the most deserving of our award this year.
