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.

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 rising level of income, together with capital growth. In providing an above average level of income, particular attention will be paid towards capital security and maintenance. There is no restriction on the economic sectors or geographical areas in which the Fund may invest, however, the investments will be predominantly in ordinary shares of UK companies, although the Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, collective investment schemes, warrants, money market instruments and deposits.
