Threadneedle UK fund manager change

Posted by Jason Chapman in Fund and industry updates category on 09 Sep 14


It has been announced that Simon Brazier, fund manager of the Threadneedle UK fund, and the fund's co-manager Blake Hutchins, have left the firm.

What is the impact?

The fund's Morningstar OBSR Analyst Rating™ has now been placed 'under review'. The fund previously held a Silver rating. Going forward Leigh Harrison, Threadneedle's Head of Equities, has assumed responsibility for the UK Equity team and the fund will be managed by Chris Kinder, a senior manager and core member of the UK Equity team.

Morningstar OBSR has confirmed they will meet with Mr Kinder in the coming weeks to review his plans for the fund.
