About Mark Hall

Mark Hall says 'common sense' and 'pragmatism' are the main characteristics of his investment style which have helped him ride the changing tides of the stockmarket to great effect. Hall joined Rensburg in 1988 as a smaller companies investment analyst. He launched the BWD Aggressive Growth fund in September 2001 (renamed Rensburg UK Select Growth) for which he prefers to run a concentrated portfolio containing between 30 to 50 stocks across the market capitalisation range. Hall’s focus on absolute returns, and his freedom to invest across the market has enabled the fund to deliver consistently good performance. Hall enjoys walking, football and European cinema.
