Andrew Green

Andrew Green claims he would have been a church pastor if he had not become a fund manager and says his ambition is 'to serve God faithfully with the gifts he has given me'. Investors should be grateful that Green chose fund management, where he shines by picking stocks both globally and in the UK. He stays out of the limelight, eschewing most media interviews unless he is attending one of GAM's investment conferences. Green's style is individualistic and he is a contrarian stockpicker who bets against the crowd. While the rest run for cover, you will likely find Green buying under-appreciated companies at what prove to be bargain prices. Yet when the bulls are boasting that the latest market rally has much further to run, the chances are that Green will be quietly taking his profits and building up cash resources for the next dip which he sees on the horizon. A fund manager for 20 years, he honed his skills under the tutelage of another legendary shrewd investor, Nils Taube, at the then stockbrokers Kitcat & Aitken.

Objective

The objective of the Fund is to provide capital appreciation, primarily through investment in quoted securities on a worldwide basis.
