Despite the fact she is one of the UK's top female fund managers, Rosemary Banyard still manages to find time for her children on top of learning to play the violin and teaching a Sunday school class. Banyard is a UK Smaller Companies specialist and invests in companies she expects to provide long-term growth. She uses a bottom-up style and targets firms with unique products for which demand is not being met. Banyard's portfolio include the Schroder UK Smaller Companies unit trust. Born in March 1958, Banyard completed a degree in Classics from Cambridge University and an MBA from the London Business School. Her first post was in 1979 as a graduate trainee with James Capel and she became a key analyst at the group, with her areas of specialisation including textiles. In 1995 she got her first fund manager position with John Govett. She joined Schroders in 1997 and is co-head of the group's UK small Cap team and Pan-European smaller companies team.
