In the latest in our series of interviews with some of the industry's key Investment Influencers, Investment Week talks to John Husselbee of Liontrust Asset Management.
Who are the Investment Influencers?
The fund selection and research sectors play a major part in the UK's asset management industry, but who are the key individuals in these areas?
We have identified them as those who not only control the allocation of fund flows and decide ratings, but are respected by asset managers for the depth of their knowledge, the honesty of their views, their professionalism in analysing and selecting funds, and the responsibility with which they manage clients' assets.
Over the coming months, we will be meeting these key players and revealing their views on the world of investing and how they are facing the challenges under which we all operate including: more onerous regulation, an uncertain market environment and increased short-termism.
