Q and A: Richard Buxton (Schroders)
Richard Buxton has been Head of UK Equities at Schroders for the past ten years and someone whose views on the UK stock market I have followed for nearly twice that time. His UK Alpha Plus Fund, a concentrated portfolio of some 30 large and midcap stocks, selected on the basis of in-house research, as risen in value by 163% since its launch in 2002 and ranks fourth of 191 funds in the All Companies sector over that period. This is his current take on where the markets sit.
