About Colin Stone

Before entering the world of investment management, Colin Stone took a masters in engineering from Cambridge. He went on to complete an MEng Engineering at Herriot-Wyatt University in 1984 and then worked as a petroleum engineer for Britoil. Stone joined Fidelity as a research analyst in 1987 and became a portfolio manager three years later. He looks for companies that are under-researched or not adequately understood, and consequently undervalued. Companies at the forefront of niche markets are also ones that he prefers. This investment approach is applied to his Fidelity European Smaller Companies fund. He is also responsible for the Fidelity European Opportunities unit trust and several institutional funds.
