The best fund managers in terms of top-performance over the past decade has been revealed by new research compiled by TD Direct Investing. It comes as little surprise that the list features household names such as Richard Buxton, Nick Train and Neil Woodford but top honors go to Mark Slater:
Michelle McGrade, chief investment officer of TD Direct Investing, says: “There has been much criticism of active funds, with many saying that the average manager has failed to beat the benchmark. But what this means is that people shouldn’t invest in an average manager.
We analysed more than 400 UK funds looking for equity managers with a track record longer than 10 years, so ranking in the top 25 for 10-year performance is a great achievement – these managers really are the best of British.”
