Stuart Mitchell

Stuart Mitchell draws on more than 15 years' experience in European markets for the management of the St James's Place Continental European Fund. Born in Scotland in 1954, Mitchell studied Medieval History at St. Andrews University. He started out with Morgan Grenfell Asset Management in 1987 and worked his way up from European analyst to a director and head of European equities prior to joining J O Hambro Investment Management in 1998. Stuart left Hambro in March 2005 to establish S. W. Mitchell Capital.


The investment objective of the fund is to have a 12% annualised return with half the volatility of the market. The Fund may also invest up to 10% of its net asset value in debt securities which may include government and corporate bonds and notes (fixed and floating rate) and commercial paper which may be rated either above or below investment grade (a rating of BBB or above by Standards & Poor's or another internationally recognised credit agency).
