About Tom Dobell

Tom Dobell joined M&G in 1992 and was appointed manager of the flagship M&G Recovery Fund in April 2000. He adopts a bottom-up, stockpicking approach and targets companies with strong fundamental qualities that are out of favour due to temporary setbacks. He also favours firms that are perceived as dull but that own potentially exciting businesses. A graduate from the Agricultural College, Writtle, Dobell crossed over to the City in 1987 when he joined Phillips & Drew's charity and small pension fund division.
