Mark Slater

Mark Slater co-founded Slater Investments, the specialist UK equity fund manager, in 1994. The company manages a hedge fund, three unit trusts and portfolios for large pension schemes and high net worth individuals. Mark is Chairman and Chief Investment Officer. The company has achieved very strong investment performance since inception. Notably, Slater Investments managed a top performing fund in the mid to late 1990s and produced very resilient results during the 2000-2003 bear market. More recently, the company's MFM Slater Growth Fund ranked as the best performing fund in 2010 encompassing all categories of UK equity funds, while the MFM Slater Recovery Fund was also one of the best performing UK equity funds over the same period. Mark is ranked as one of the top performing UK fund managers over the past decade. Prior to founding Slater Investments, Mark worked as a financial journalist with Analyst PLC and the Investor's Chronicle. Also in 1992, he helped research and edit a best-selling investment book "The Zulu Principle" for his father, Jim Slater, which focuses on identifying small to medium-sized growth companies. During his career, Mark has served on the boards of four public companies in which he has been a substantial shareholder. Mark has an MA in History from Cambridge University.


The objective of the fund is to achieve capital growth. This is to be achieved through investment in companies both in the UK and overseas but concentrating mainly on UK shares. The Scheme will focus in particular on shares which the Manager believes are currently undervalued and that have the potential of a significant re-rating. Other investments including bonds, warrants, deposits and collective investment schemes may be used where it is considered that they meet the investment objective. It is also intended where appropriate to take advantage of underwritings and placings. At times it may be appropriate for the Scheme not to be fully invested but to hold cash and near cash.
