Neil holds a BA (Hons) in Economics, an MSc in Investment Management, and is a CFA charterholder. He is also lead manager of the SVM World Equity Fund and co-manager of SVM’s Pan European product, the SVM All Europe SRI Fund.

Neil has a voracious appetite for investment related books and usually has at least two on the go at any given time. The three books that have influenced him most thus far are Capital Account: A Fund Manager’s account of a Turbulent Decade, The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.

When asked about what advise he would give aspiring managers – he says ” to stay humble – recognize that you will often be wrong and always be concerned about the thesis of each portfolio holding”.
