About Philip Wolstencroft
Philip Wolstencroft is a cult figure at Artemis having devised the group's SMART GARP investment system, which provides specialist quantitative analysis of the market situation. Wolstencroft believes the more publicised process known as GARP provides information in a volatile or lumpy fashion. However, data run through the more rigorous process of SMART GARP offers a steadier and more profound insight into which sectors are likely to go up or down. Born in Portsmouth in May 1963, Wolstencroft gained a BA in Economics from Sheffield University and followed this with an MA from Warwick University. He started out in 1985 as an analyst on the British Rail Pension Fund before moving to WorldInvest where he was a global fixed income fund manager. In 1989 he joined Natwest Investment Management before switching to Merrill Lynch in 1991 to front the group's UK and European equity strategy division. In 2001 he moved to Artemis and is head of the firm's European investment team for which he manages the Artemis European Growth fund, which merged with the Artemis Pan European fund in February 2003.
