    Paul Niven's team

    The fund is run day-to-day by the fund manager, Paul Niven. As fund manager, Paul sets the Trust's investment policy, deciding where to allocate its assests and its level of gearing. Paul is supported by the entire team of investment professionals at F&C. This includes risk analysts and managers both within the company, and outside, but who work on its behalf. The full team works together to look after the investment portfolio, contributing research and investment ideas to make sure that the Trust is doing everything it can to grow your capital and income. Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust has had only three fund managers over the past four decades. Paul was appointed in 2014 after 18 years with F&C, succeeding Jeremy Tigue who joined F&C in 1981.

    The Board

    Paul's team is overseen by The Board which decides on the overall investment strategy. The Board makes sure that, as a shareholder, your interests are best served. It's made up of eight experts who have experience with some of the strongest financial institutions in the world, as well as in other industries such as manufacturing and marketing. The Board meets regularly to discuss every aspect of the Trust's investment strategy in the context of how the wider market is performing. In addition, the Board also meets to discuss corporate investment strategy, audit and administrative matters.

    You can talk to the Board about how the Trust is performing every year at the Annual General Meeting.
