Nicholas Purves

Nicholas Purves describes his value-based investment style as ‘fundamentalist’. Appropriately for a geology graduate from Bristol University, Purves says he adopts a ‘bottom-up’ strategy on his funds, searching for investment opportunities wherever they occur. This contrasts with other managers who employ the ‘top-down’ technique of identifying attractive business sectors before selecting the best stocks in those areas. Purves started out at Schroders as an analyst before moving over to the fund management team. He currently works at RWC basing his investments on a strategy that seeks companies that are undervalued by the market despite having a strong franchise and a healthy balance sheet. Born in Cambridge in 1967, Purves is also a qualified chartered accountant.
