About Nigel Thomas

Nigel Thomas is one of the few fund managers who can boast a career record of more than 15 years at the helm of UK-oriented unit trusts and he has built an impressive record over this period. Thomas learned his trade at the hands of legendary stockmarket investor John Carrington before Carrington's company was sold to Dutch bank ABN Amro. Early in 2002 Framlington (now AXA Framlington) lured him across to the other side of Bishopsgate in the heart of the City. Thomas, an Economics and Geography graduate from UCL and a keen horseracing fan, has worked alongside George Luckraft for this entire period and they are seen as inseparable. Thomas made particularly impressive returns for his investors during the stockmarket rally of late 1999/early 2000 but unlike many of his rivals he managed to retain much of these gains in the ensuing bear market. A growth-oriented investor, he tends to run his funds with approximately one-third of his assets exposed to each of the large-cap, mid-cap and small-cap areas of the stockmarket. He is responsible for AXA Framlington UK Select Opportunities fund.
