Managed by

Steven Andrew

As a fund manager at M&G, Steven Andrew is responsible for the M&G Episode Income Fund, which he has run since first becoming a fund manager for the company in 2010. The fund follows a top-down investment style, focusing on macro factors with a behavioural finance overlay. This investment philosophy has allowed the fund to offer returns in various market conditions, and Andrew believes that the fund is robust enough to continue to do so in the future. Andrew studied Financial Economics at the University of London.

Objective

The Fund's aim is to generate a high and rising level of income over time through investment in a diversified range of assets. The fund manager adopts a flexible approach to the allocation of capital between asset classes in response to changes in economic conditions and the valuation of assets. The fund invests in transferable securities, fixed income assets (including, but not limited to, corporate bonds and government and public securities), warrants, money market instruments, deposits, cash and near cash.
