Managed by

Scott McKenzie

Born in Glasgow in 1969, Scott McKenzie has over 15 years’ experience as a fund manager. He started out as an analyst with Britannic Asset Management in 1990 and was subsequently promoted to fund manager in the UK equities team. He joined Norwich Union in October 1999 where he ran the Norwich Distribution and the Norwich UK Equity Income funds. He moved to Martin Currie in November 2005 and describes himself as an income investor looking for total return through the exploitation of various investment styles.

Objective

The investment objective of SGF is to achieve a long term total return on the invested assets at a higher rate than the total return on the FTSE All Share Index. To meet this objective, the ACD will carefully select and invest in a diversified portfolio of primarily United Kingdom equity securities which provide the potential for long term growth. SGF may also invest in overseas securities. and may also invest in cash and near cash, deposits and collective investment schemes. In most cases this is likely to occur only where the ACD considers that equity share prices have become overvalued.
