About Graham French

Graham French focuses on companies that he considers to be the 'building blocks' of the world's economy for his M&G Global Basics fund. He has a bias towards large liquid companies and those which have the capacity to grow independently of the economic environment. To make his portfolio a company has to have: a strong competitive edge, sustainable market share, a proven business model, a strong balance sheet, good revenue growth and low valuations. French is also very interested in traditional companies, which can use technological change to boost productivity gains from their existing operations. French graduated in Geography from Durham University.
