He started at the time they were launching their first four funds specifically for UK investors and he ran one of these, the Fidelity Special Situations Fund, for 28 years. During that time it averaged a return of just under 20% pa and became one of the largest funds for UK investors with over ¼ million investors. He also ran two large European funds and two investment trusts.
In 2010 he moved to Hong Kong for 4 years to run Fidelity China Special Situations PLC. He retired in 2014 but remains a director of Fidelity International and an advisor. He has also written a book about investment called ‘Investing Against the Tide’.
