After seven years he moved to LGT Asset Management as an analyst and then portfolio manager before joining TT International four years later.

The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve absolute returns producing long term capital growth. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily equity and equity-related securities traded in European markets which the Investment Manager believes have sound prospects for sustainable growth and represent value in the form of assets and earnings. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets in equity or equity-related securities traded on the exchanges of some or all of the countries included in the MSCI Europe Index.
