Pie lunches

Join us for the latest food for thought from our Equity Fund Managers

Ringing in the New Year

We're pleased to announce that our popular pie lunches will make a welcome return as we start 2022.

The long-standing format of an informal lunch with each of the R&M fund managers remains the same, but we are expanding the sessions this quarter. We've added a breakfast meeting with Dan Hanbury and George Ensor to look at our UK Smaller Companies fund, while James Sym and William Lough will, over lunch, discuss R&M's perspective on identifying ESG opportunities that can truly make a positive change.
