Oscroft has been running the fund since July 2001 and also looks after a similar amount of institutional money. He joined L&G in October 2000 after five years with Hermes Investment Management where he specialised in small company research. Before that he worked in the transport asset rental industry. An economics graduate from Cambridge, he enjoys playing rugby, fives and golf when not picking stocks.
