Jeremy Podger

As a Philosophy graduate from Cambridge, Jeremy Podger espouses much on his investment style. He joined Fidelity in February 2012 and runs the Fidelity Global Special Situations Fund having spent nine years at Threadneedle where he was head of global equities. He also spent seven years at Investec managing global equity funds and was head of Continental European institutional equities. He has enjoyed stints at Saudi International Bank, Mirage and Guinness Flight. Jeremy also holds an MBA from London Business School.


The Fund's investment objective is to achieve long term capital growth from a portfolio primarily made up of the shares of companies around the world. The Fund has a blend of investments in larger-, medium- and smaller-sized companies. The Fund Manager is not restricted in the choice of companies either by size or industry, or in terms of the geographical split of the portfolio, and the choice of stocks is largely determined by the availability of attractive investment opportunities.
