Kathryn Langridge

Kathryn Langridge raised a few eyebrows when she became the first woman from a British university to be taken on by Hong Kong group Jardine Matheson in 1980. Langridge repaid the vote of confidence by achieving good performance for the institutional pension schemes under her control. In 1990 she moved to Invesco Perpetual, where she was head of international equity products. In 2007 She joined Lloyd George, and subsequently Jupiter in 2010. She left Jupiter at the end of 2014. Born in 1958, Langridge graduated from Cambridge with a degree in English Literature. She cites former colleague Neil Woodford and value guru Sir John Templeton as the fund managers she most respects.
