About William Pattisson

William Pattisson does not like too much face-to-face contact with the companies in which he invests. 'I've no interest in slick investor relations people telling us what they want us to hear,' he says. One bias he wants to avoid is feeling guilty about selling a stock if he liked the people he met. Pattisson built a strong reputation running the Liontrust First Large Cap fund and the Liontrust Winners Investment Trust. He then left the company to set up Ardevora alongside Jeremy Lang. 'Running winners and avoiding losers' is his investment philosophy in a nutshell. Born in June 1963, Pattisson graduated in Economics from Christchurch College, Oxford and has been a fund manager for more than 20 years. He established his reputation at Flemings, where he successfully managed the £410 million Fleming Claverhouse investment trust, before he joined Liontrust.
