Managed by

Andrew Brough

An Economics graduate from Manchester and a fund manager with more than 20 years’ investment experience behind him, Andrew Brough co-heads the Schroder pan-European small and mid-cap equity team. Brough runs unit trusts, including the Schroder UK Mid 250 fund, and a number of specialist institutional mandates for Schroders. Brough argues that mid-caps have greater potential for continued growth than larger companies, and he will often invest in companies with a unique product or service for which demand is strong. Conversely, he is disciplined in selling a stock if there are signs that increased competition will mean that company's unique advantage has been lost. He adopts a bottom-up investment style targeting firms with quality management and effective business models. Brough was born in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, in 1960 and has been with Schroders since 1987.
