Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell.

Our view on the sector

Funds in this sector generally try to make a positive return in any market condition. But they go about it in different ways. Some focus on one type of asset, such as shares or bonds, while others invest in a variety of different assets. Some stick to one geographical area, like the UK or Europe, while others invest globally. Some also take 'short' positions, which can allow the fund to benefit from falling prices. It can be difficult to compare funds in this sector because they're so different, so each one should be considered on its own merits. Some have been more volatile than others, some have sheltered investors' money well but not done as well when markets have risen, while others have performed poorly. Like any investment, there's still a degree of risk and they're not guaranteed to make money.

Fund manager biography

Manager Name: Graham Clapp
Manager start date: 4 January 2018
Manager located in:

In September 2017 Graham completed a deal to join RWC Partners, along with his investment team, from Pensato, which he founded in 2008. At RWC Graham is focussed on using his extensive research capacity to manage both long-only and long-short European equity funds. Before establishing Pensato, Graham worked at Fidelity Investments for 22 years, leading its European Institutional Group from 1991 to 2004. When Graham started work at Fidelity in London in 1984, the company was a mid-ranked firm in the UK asset management industry with approximately EUR10bn of assets under management and a European investment team of less than 10 people. In the late 1980s, Graham spent some time at Fidelity in Boston, working with Peter Lynch. Graham brought back to London significant experience from Boston and has implemented the same approach to fundamental investment ever since. Having delivered strong investment returns while running the European Institutional Group, Graham was asked in 2002 to take over Fidelity International's flagship European fund - the Fidelity European Growth Fund. The fund had previously been managed by Anthony Bolton. Between 2002 and 2006, Graham grew assets in the European Growth Fund from approximately EUR 9bn to EUR 25bn becoming the largest mutual fund in Europe. Fidelity European Growth delivered outperformance of 6.7% p.a. versus the FTSE World Europe from Dec 2002 - Dec 2006. During his time at Fidelity, Graham was highly instrumental in the growth of the London investment business. By 2006, Fidelity had established a market leading position in London with assets of approximately EUR 350billion and an investment team of nearly 50. However, in 2006 Graham wanted a new challenge and he founded Pensato Capital to manage European long/short equity funds. Pensato has now been successful for over 10 years and won the Eurohedge European Equity Hedge Fund (Sub $500m) award in 2015.
