Richard graduated from Cardiff University in 1996, he then worked for Abbey National Stockbrokers in London and Jersey before joining Ashburton.

Richard began his Ashburton career as an assistant on the Ashburton European Equity Fund and became Lead Fund Manager of this Fund from 2007 to April 2014. Richard was one of the architects for the move from a regional to a sectoral investment model. Richard successfully launched the Ashburton Global Energy Fund in 2013. A fund that focuses on management of the cycle which creates more opportunity to generate alpha. This tried and tested approach is evident through the life of the Fund.


The Sub-Fund aims to achieve long term capital growth by investing at least 75% in Transferable Securities in companies listed globally which are involved in the exploration, development, production and distribution of oil, gas, coal, renewable energy and other energy sources. While the Sub-Funds invested assets will be denominated in a range of currencies, the Sub-Fund will be seeking to maximise total returns on a US dollar basis.
