Fund Manager Chat: The Mutual Fund Start-Up. Matthew Beddall, CEO – Havelock London

by Jake Moeller.

In this podcast, Matthew Beddall, CEO and co-founder of the recently formed boutique fund manager, Havelock London, outlines the objectives and processes that underpin his soon-to-be-launched fund.

The Havelock process promises to be a unique blend of intensive and highly focused data mining and analysis which will create an actively managed and concentrated portfolio of stocks with a value bias.

In a highly volatile and consolidating fund market, Mr Beddall outlines the challenges – and opportunities – of launching a boutique operation in 2018. He explains how he expects his small, but highly qualified team, to punch above their weight in the competitive U.K. fund market.

Matthew is chatting with Jake Moeller, Head of Lipper UK and Ireland Research at Refinitiv in London on February 6, 2018.

Havelock London are currently pre-authorisation with the FCA and their inaugural fund is expected to be launched later in 2018.
