Craig Farley, lead Fund Manager of the Ashburton Chindia Equity Fund, has been ranked 17th best emerging markets equity manager 2017 by Citywire, a leading independent information provider for professional advisers and investors globally.  

The accolade, also called a Euro Stars award, is only given to the top 250 from a database of over 16,000 managers monitored by Citywire. This builds on a great year for Jersey-based Craig who has achieved a “AAA” rating putting him in the top 2.5% of all fund managers analysed by Citywire.  

Craig said ‘’The Euro Stars award is a reflection of the collective efforts of the team. I am delighted that the Fund’s consistent performance has been recognised, and continue to believe that a combination of China and India offers existing and potential clients the most attractive long term opportunity in an emerging markets context.’’ In order to be eligible for the Euro Stars accolade, managers must have a minimum of three years’ track record as well as managing a fund which is available in three European countries.
