Schroders’ Richard Buxton recently celebrated 10 years at the helm of the Schroder UK Alpha Plus Fund, a decade in which he outperformed the FTSE All Share Index 67.5% of the time.
Buxton’s fund is ranked first quartile across five and seven years and since launch in 2002, and is second quartile over three years.
According to data from Morningstar, he outperformed his benchmark in 27 out of 40 quarters within the past decade.
