Talking Money: The hunt for UK companies that can compete globally
Top performing fund manager Richard Hallett is becoming a little less cautious about growth
In the latest Money Makers podcast Jonathan Davis returns to talk to a fund manager whose multi-cap equity fund has the distinction, according to research by FE Trustnet, of having outperformed its benchmark in every rolling five year period since 2000 – one of only two funds out of several hundred in the UK All Companies sector to have done so. The fund manager in question is Richard Hallett, whose Marlborough UK Multi-Cap Growth fund, has as its name suggests the freedom to invest across the UK market spectrum, from the Footsie 100 index all the way down to AIM. The fund has returned more than 325% since 2000, when it was originally run by Giles Hargreave, and 295% since 2005 when Richard Hallett took it over. I last caught up with this fund manager just over a year ago, before the Brexit referendum.
