Carl Stick

Carl Stick graduated from the University of Southampton in 1991 with a BA Honours degree in English Literature. Having served in several non-investment related jobs, he took up a position as an assistant private client manager with stockbroking firm Neilson Cobbold, Tunbridge Wells, in 1996. When Rathbones acquired Neilson Cobbold in 1998 Carl transferred to London. In August 1998, after two years as a discretionary investment manager, he became an assistant fund manager for the unit trust business, working alongside Hugh Priestley. Carl took over the management of the Rathbone Income Fund in January 2000. Since October 2001, he has been a Board Director of Rathbone Unit Trust Management and plays a key role in the development of Rathbone's investment process and business strategy. He is also I.I.M.R-qualified and a Fellow of the Securities Institute.

Objective

The investment objective is to achieve above average and maintainable income but without neglecting capital security and growth. The manager intends to achieve the objective primarily through the purchase of ordinary shares with an above average yield. There is no restriction on the economic sectors or geographical areas in which the fund may invest. However, investments will always be predominantly in the ordinary shares of UK companies.
