Crispin Odey

Crispin Odey graduated from Christ Church College, Oxford in 1980 where he studied history and economics. He started managing funds with Framlington Fund Managers before joining Baring Asset Management where he ran retail and pension funds. Crispin established Odey Asset Management in 1991 and is head of investment management. He runs the CF Odey Opus Fund, investing in global equity and fixed interest stocks.


The investment objective of the Sub-Fund is to achieve long term capital appreciation. The Sub-Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing principally in a portfolio of equities and equity related securities, debt securities and currencies, as further described below. The Investment Manager expects that the Sub-Fund’s investments will tend, over time, to be weighted towards European securities but investments in non-European securities will not be subject to any limit.
