About Alan Dobbie

Alan Dobbie was born in Campbeltown, Scotland, in 1979. He studied chemistry at Edinburgh University and finance and accounting at Glasgow and Strathclyde before joining Rathbone as a trainee fund manager in 2005. He is now a fund manager in the UK equity income space where he implements a value investment strategy in a primarily large-cap universe. Cash is employed tactically but no derivatives are used. As well as a range of valuation metrics, Alan also incorporates a top-down view into the portfolio. He cites steadily rising markets as the best environment for his strategy. Away from fund management Alan enjoys golf, football and music. Alan holds the IMC certificate and is a CFA-Charterholder.
