Ian Lance

Ian Lance was born in Croydon, London in 1966. He attended Loughborough University where he gained a degree in economics with economic and social history. Ian started his career in 1989 with Sun Alliance before joining Legal and General in 1990. He moved to Gartmore in 1995 and after five years he joined Citigroup. Ian joined New Star in 2005, and two years later moved to Schroders. He currently works at RWC having joined in September 2010. Ian has been managing funds for well over 20 years. Outside of fund management he enjoys rugby and walking.

Nicholas Purves

Nicholas Purves describes his value-based investment style as ‘fundamentalist’. Appropriately for a geology graduate from Bristol University, Purves says he adopts a ‘bottom-up’ strategy on his funds, searching for investment opportunities wherever they occur. This contrasts with other managers who employ the ‘top-down’ technique of identifying attractive business sectors before selecting the best stocks in those areas. Purves started out at Schroders as an analyst before moving over to the fund management team. He currently works at RWC basing his investments on a strategy that seeks companies that are undervalued by the market despite having a strong franchise and a healthy balance sheet. Born in Cambridge in 1967, Purves is also a qualified chartered accountant.
