About Sebastian Lyon

Born in London and educated at Charterhouse, Sebastian Lyon graduated from the University of Southampton in 1989 gaining an honours degree in Politics and International Relations. Sebastian started out in fund management in the same year, taking up a graduate trainee role at Singer & Friedlander, before promotion to the post of assistant pension fund manager during his three year spell with the company. During this period, Sebastian continued his studies picking up both a City Financial Diploma and becoming a TSA Registered Rep. The remainder of the 1990s saw Sebastian holding posts with MGAM & Stanhope Investment Management during which time he also became an Associate of the IIMR. Sebastian left Stanhope in 2000 to set up Troy Asset Management where he is currently CEO and Investment Director as well as being lead manager for the Trojan fund. He describes the investment approach for this fund as cautious, targeting absolute returns with a bias towards value investments. Sebastian’s recreational activities centre on outdoor sport with golf and tennis featuring in his interests outside of work.
