As our inaugural Citywire Fund Manager Awards get closer we grill Prudential investment director Andy Brown on what he looks for in a fund manager.
In this exclusive interview, we ask Brown about the questions he asks fund managers, and what questions he expects in return.
We go on to talk about blockbuster funds and the role of larger asset managers versus boutiques.
The fund manager awards will be handed at a gala dinner out on 6 March to Citywire-rated managers in 10 major sectors. They will be judged on their investment approach, interaction with investors and performance.
