Derek Stuart

Artemis co-founder Derek Stuart says: 'Most people can identify a good quality company. It's the recognition of valuation that makes you money.' Stuart's adept stockpicking has been a salient feature throughout his fund management career. He started out as a trainee with Ivory & Sime, where he worked alongside fellow Artemis founders John Dodd and Mark Tyndall. In 1992 he was promoted to manage UK equity income portfolios and then moved into the UK small and mid-cap sectors before he left to help form Artemis in 1997. His key fund is Artemis UK Special Situations, which merged with the Artemis UK Select Opportunites fund in February 2003.


The objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by exploiting special situations. The Fund invests principally in UK equities and in companies which are headquartered or have a significant part of their activities in the UK which are quoted on a regulated market outside the UK. The Manager actively manages the portfolio. The securities of companies listed, quoted and/or traded in the UK but domiciled elsewhere and the securities of companies traded on PLUS may be included in the portfolio.
