Gordon Grender

Gordon Grender's knowledge of North American stockmarkets dates back to 1974 when he got his first fund managerial role with London stockbrokers Kitcat & Aitken. During this apprenticeship, he worked alongside the legendary Nils Taube and fellow GAM star manager Andrew Green. He is regarded as an out and out value investor, prone to be contrarian, a trait he shares with Green. Grender's association with GAM began in 1983 when he was employed on a consultancy basis. He is now a full-time investment adviser for the group and is responsible for the GAM North America Growth fund among others.

Objective
