About Philip Saunders

Born in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1958, Philip Saunders began his career in 1981 at Guinness Mahon & Co in London. He joined as a graduate trainee and was named assistant fund manager a year later. By 1984 Saunders held sole responsibility for the management of currency funds. After three years in this role he was promoted to director and head of fixed income. He made a lateral move in 1995 to take control of Guinness Flight’s retail sales and marketing business. The acquisition of Guinness Flight by Investec Asset Management saw him return to the company's investment management division in 1999 when he assumed the position of head of multimanager services. Saunders is manager of the Investec GSF Global Strategic Managed fund and the Investec Managed Growth fund for which he primarily invests in shares of investment trust companies. Educated at Cambridge, Saunders counts sailing and art history among his hobbies.
