About Anthony Bolton

Anthony Bolton is something of a legend in the industry because he has managed to outperform his peers and benchmarks consistently over the last 25 years. This achievement is all the more remarkable given his responsibility for managing the Fidelity Special Situations fund which stands at over £3bn - conventional wisdom has it that it is much harder to outperform rivals with larger sums of money under management. Bolton is a contrarian value investor who organises his investments around five key themes: recovery plays; firms on a discount to their underlying worth, companies offering unrecognised growth potential; opportunities linked to impending corporate activity; and firms that are simply cheap compared to others in their industry. Bolton joined Fidelity in 1979, having graduated in Engineering from Trinity College, Cambridge. He celebrated 25 years at the helm of the Special Situations fund in December 2004.
