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.

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 has led him to be 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.
