About Robert Burdett

After six years at Credit Suisse Robert Burdett, along with co-manager Gary Potter, has launched a new investment boutique in conjunction with Thames River. They have streamlined the 11 multimanager portfolios they presided over and fashioned at Credit Suisse into five portfolios at their new stable. Ironically, Burdett started his career with stockbrokers Buckmaster & Moore in 1985 and left the firm just before its acquisition by Credit Suisse in 1987. After spells with Allied Provincial Securities (now Gerrard) and Berry Asset Management, he moved to Rothschild Asset Management (now Insight) and formed a formidable partnership with Potter, which became the talk of the multi-manager industry. With their reputations firmly established the duo were poached by Credit Suisse and asked to launch the group's multi-manager business. Burdett is responsible for a wide range of funds and unsurprisingly his investment style is closely linked to Potters, with a 'best of breed' approach and the blending of quantitative and qualitative factors being the major features.
