Steve Cordell

Steve Cordell holds more than 20 years of investment experience and is a portfolio manager at Schroders. Steve moved across to Schroders as part of the takeover of Cazenove Capital in July 2013. He originally joined Cazenove in 2002. Steve joined Cazenove from HSBC Asset Management (Europe) Ltd where he was responsible for the multi award-winning AA-rated HGIF Pan European fund and several other retail and institutional Pan-European portfolios. He graduated from Trinity College, Oxford with a First Class (Hons) in Modern Languages. Outside of fund management, he lists golf, tennis and cinema/theatre as his interests with his main interest being spending time with his family.

Objective

The fund aims to achieve absolute returns through targeted investment strategies independent of UK market conditions or indices. The fund has a bias towards large and mid cap stocks. It aims to deliver a minimum positive return over a rolling three-year period from both rising and falling equity prices. In addition, in the medium term (5 years plus) the fund is targeting a return of 8-10% per annum (net of fees) with less than two thirds of the volatility of the FTSE All-Share Index. There is no guarantee that either the positive returns or this target will be achieved.
