Alastair Mundy

Alastair Mundy does not get overly excited by market momentum and describes himself as a contrarian investor. He has experience in both fixed interest and equity fund management and is responsible for several hundred million in assets for Investec across a wide selection of asset classes. Born in London in August 1966, Mundy gained a BSc in Actuarial Science from City University, London. He got his first fund manager job with CGU and was closely involved in investment trust launches at the group before he joined Investec in July 2000.


The Fund aims to produce steady capital growth over the long term by investing primarily in a portfolio of equities and related derivatives. While the Fund aims to achieve a positive return there is no guarantee it will be achieved over the long term, or over any period of time. There is no guarantee that all capital invested in the Fund will be returned. The Fund will seek to achieve its objectives by holding investments which in the opinion of Investec, in aggregate, and particularly over the long term, offer a level of risk lower than that of the FTSE All Share Index.
