Adrian Frost

Adrian Frost entered the world of money management in 1979 as a stockbroker. He joined Deutsche Asset Management in 1983 and became a director in 1990. His appointment as head of UK equities in 1996 saw him take charge of a 40 strong team of investment managers running approximately £5 billion of funds. Frost made the switch to Artemis in 2001 where he works in tandem with co-manager Adrian Gosden. Together the two Adrians look after the Artemis Income fund with Frost acting as lead manager. The duo employ a blended / multi cap stock selection style and also manage the Artemis High Income fund. Born in Newton Abbot, Devon in October 1957, Frost holds a degree in Geography from Jesus College, Cambridge and is a keen cook and father to six children.

The Manager actively manages the portfolio in order to achieve the objective with exposure to ordinary shares, preference shares, convertibles and fixed interest securities. The Manager will not be restricted in respect of choice of investments either by company size or industry, or in terms of the geographical split of the portfolio.
