He will work alongside Philip Wolstencroft and Peter Saacke, managing the three funds that Philip and Peter run – Artemis Capital, European Growth and Global Growth - using Artemis’ proprietary stock-screening tool, SmartGARP.

Artemis Investment Management LLP is delighted to confirm that Raheel Altaf has joined them today as a fund manager. He will work alongside Philip Wolstencroft and Peter Saacke, managing the three funds that Philip and Peter run – Artemis Capital, European Growth and Global Growth - using Artemis’ proprietary stock-screening tool, SmartGARP.

Including institutional mandates, Philip and Peter manage a total of £1.5 billion under the SmartGARP strategy.

Until December 2013, Raheel was a portfolio manager at Fulcrum Asset Management. Before that he spent over nine years at Fidelity International, latterly as lead portfolio manager for a range of active and passive systematic equity funds with $2.5 billion in AUM.

Commenting, Philip Wolstencroft said: “Peter and I have been using SmartGARP to manage money at Artemis for over a decade. The fundamentals of the process have served us well and have generated strong long-term performance for our investors. But we continue to monitor market developments to ensure that SmartGARP is best placed to add value in the future.
