About Richard Peirson

Richard Peirson has over 25 years' experience as a fund manager and he follows AXA Framlington's investment philosophy, which focuses on companies which offer growth at a reasonable price. He assesses a company's growth prospects by analysing the quality of its management, its financial position, the industry in which it operates and its competitive position. He applies this to his AXA Framlington Financial fund. Born in 1949 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Peirson went on to gain a BSc in Computational and Statistical Science from Liverpool University. He started out his career as a computer consultant for Arthur Andersen and moved into money management with stockbrokers Grieveson Grant in 1982. His contract was renewed by Kleinwort Benson in 1986 after its acquisition of Grieveson Grant and he spent eight years with the group before he was snapped up AXA Framlington.
