We’re delighted to welcome Graeme Bencke to the Equity Funds team.

5 Sep 2018


Graeme joins from PineBridge Investments, where he ran a number of equity strategies – including the group’s strongly-performing Global Focus Equity Fund. A former Royal Air Force pilot, Bencke has also held roles at Killik & Co and F&C Asset Management – where he ran the European small-cap equity portfolio.

Bencke will work alongside Ken Wotton and Brendan Gulston, co-managers of our UK Micro Cap Fund and UK Multi Cap Income Fund.

Launched in May 2009, the LF Gresham House UK Micro Cap Fund has delivered a return of 132.50% over a 5 year period to 31 August 2018, against 85.58% for the IA UK Smaller Companies sector.¹ Launched at the end of June 2017, the LF Gresham House UK Multi Cap is ranked 1 out of 87 funds in the IA UK Equity Income sector over the last 12 months, according to Financial Express, delivering a return of 16.24% year to 31st August 2018 versus 4.07% average sector performance.²

Please note reference to past performance should not be viewed as a reliable indicator of how the investments will perform in the future.
