Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
-
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
-
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
-
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.

NameSinceBiography
Anthony Cross10/11/2005Anthony Cross joined Schroder Investment Management as a graduate trainee. He spent his first three years as an equity analyst before joining the Smaller Companies team in 1994. During this time, Anthony identified a number of characteristics common to successful companies and on joining Liontrust in 1997 he was able to develop his thoughts further and create a documented investment process. This process, called Liontrust Economic Advantage, was applied to the Liontrust UK Smaller Companies Fund from the start of 1998. Its success and relevance to the broader market led to the launch of the Liontrust Special Situations Fund in 2005, the management of the Liontrust UK Growth Fund in 2009, and the launch of the Liontrust UK Micro Cap Fund in 2016. Awards for the funds that Anthony co-manages with Julian Fosh include Liontrust being named Best UK Equity Group by Money Observer magazine, the Liontrust Special Situations Fund being named: Best UK Growth fund at the Investment Week Fund Manager of the Year Awards in 2011 and 2012; Best UK Growth Fund at What Investment magazine; Best Fund in the UK All Companies Sector at the Moneywise Fund Awards 2012; and won the UK Equity Gold Award 2012 from Portfolio Adviser. The fund is also member of the 2012 100 club. Anthony graduated in 1990 from Exeter University with a degree in politics.
Julian Fosh02/06/2008Julian Fosh joined Liontrust in 2008 from Saracen Fund Managers Ltd to co-manage the Liontrust UK Growth, Special Situations and UK Smaller Companies Funds with Anthony Cross. Julian has worked with Anthony to develop the Liontrust Economic Advantage process. Awards for the funds that Julian co-manages with Anthony Cross include Liontrust being named the Best Smaller Companies Group at the Professional Adviser Awards in 2009 and the Liontrust Special Situations Fund being named as the Best UK Growth fund at the Investment Week Fund Manager of the Year Awards in 2011 and 2012. From 2004 to 2008, Julian was the co-manager of Saracen Growth Fund, a top quartile performing UK equities portfolio. Before this, Julian headed up the investment department at Scottish Friendly Assurance Society Limited where he managed a range of funds including UK equity OEICs, life and pension funds. In his eight years at Scottish Friendly, six of Julian’s nine funds were in the top quartile of their respective sectors.
