Managed by

Stephen Bailey

London-born Stephen Bailey began his career in stockbroking in 1985 as a private client portfolio manager with Statham, Duff, Stoop. He followed this with a year at Sheppards & Chase, before joining Walker Crips Weddle Beck plc in 1987. After over 2 decades at Walker Crisps where he was the investment director, Bailey joined Liontrust in 2012 where he currently runs their Macro Equity Income fund and their Macro UK Growth Fund. As a keen stockmarket historian, Bailey's interest in the financial world extends beyond the rigours of fund management, he is also a sports enthusiast who enjoys cricket, rugby and golf.

Jamie Clark

Jamie Clark joined Liontrust in April 2012, transferring from Walkers Crips Asset Managers (WCAM). He joined WCAM in 2003 and prior to that he was a junior proprietary trader at First New York Securities. Jamie graduated from Southampton University in 2000 with a BA in English Literature and from Warwick University in 2001 with an MA with Distinction in English Literature.

Jan Luthman

Jan Luthman graduated in Civil Engineering from St. Andrews University in 1967. He spent eighteen years managing a range of earthmoving, timber, mining, oilfield and vehicle distributorships in Liberia and the Middle-East. An active and successful private investor during the 1980's, Luthman was amongst the first to pass the Securities Association (now the Securities Institute) exams in Investment Analysis in 1987, followed by Fund Management in 1988. However, the value of this unusual combination of formal qualifications, international corporate management and practical investment experience lay largely unrecognised and untapped until he joined Walker Crips in 2000. Now, together with colleague Stephen Bailey, he manages the Liontrust Macro UK Growth and Macro Equity Income funds, as well as segregated mandates. A fan of good wine, good food, photography and pub walks, Luthman dabbles in Old English as well as a website of children's stories and fables,


The investment objective of the Fund is to provide Unitholders with a combination of long term capital growth and a measure of income derived from a diversified portfolio of predominantly UK equities and bonds. The Fund is permitted to use derivatives for the purposes of efficient portfolio management and for investment purposes.
