Investec Cautious Managed

Citywire Selection verdict: Alastair Mundy’s contrarian value approach of targeting out of favour stocks has led him to keep large amounts of the fund invested in the UK in addition to a long-standing allocation to Norwegian government debt. Boosting performance in recent years has been his 10% stake in Japanese equities. Mundy follows a well-executed, simple strategy to generate steady returns with volatility lower than that of a single asset class investment, a process that places him among the very best mixed asset investors. Recent performance hasn’t been the best, but contrarian investors by definition will always experience periods of subdued returns.
