Alister Hibbert

Born in 1970, Alister Hibbert studied at Bristol University graduating in 1992 with a BSc in Economics. Having started his working career in 1994 with Ernst & Young, Alister moved to join Invesco Perpetual in 1996 where he remained through to 2004.

In his current role Alister manages both the European Dynamic and Continental European Flexible Fund, describing the investment style of both as “flexible”.


The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth for investors. The Fund invests primarily in the shares of companies incorporated or listed in Europe excluding the UK which we consider exhibit either growth or value investment characteristics, placing an emphasis as the market outlook warrants. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes.
