Meet the Investment Influencers: Close's Matthew Stanesby

Our regular video series continues

clock • 1 min read

The fund selection and fund research markets are a major part of the multi-trillion pound investment industry but who are the key players within it?

In the latest of our series of video interviews with the most respected individuals who select funds, decide ratings or otherwise influence the allocation of investor fund flows, we meet Matthew Stanesby, investment director at Close Brothers Asset Management.

Having joined Close Brothers in 2007, Stanesby now heads up the firm's Manager Research team, which is responsible for the research, selection and monitoring of fund managers, and is also a portfolio manager for its Managed and Tactical Select range of multi-asset funds.

Stanesby started his career in the actuarial and investment consulting world and worked within the life insurance, pensions and investment teams at Mercer and Aon. He graduated from Nottingham University with a first class honours degree in Mathematics with Engineering.

The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Dan Kemp of Morningstar, Richard Philbin of Harwood Wealth and Stephen Peters of Charles Stanley, will continue over the coming months, offering insights into how key industry players see the world of investing and expect to deal with such challenges as increased regulation, greater market volatility and a growing trend towards short-termism.

If you would like to put yourself or a colleague forward to take part in the Investment Influencers series, please email Georgina Walters.
