Over the last five years they have been responsible for managing one of the most highly regarded absolute return franchises around. It is still extremely rare to find such experienced managers who have run funds in the UCITS space for such a long time.

“Their style is transparent, liquid and proven – three elements that are essential for our clients' portfolios in today’s market. Peter and Stuart join us with a great reputation in this space and we are looking forward to them developing our UCITS III absolute return funds.
