SVM's Lawson: the biggest disruption in my 35-year career

In her 35-year career SVM's Margaret Lawson has never seen a period of greater disruption than right now.

Mergers and acquisitions have played a part in Lawson returns of late. In this video she outlines what has been driving this trend and shares her thoughts on a possible takeover of Fever Tree by Unilever.

In the last three years to January Lawson has returned 37% on her fund,  outstripping the peer group average by more than 10%.
