Jupiter manager Philip Gibbs retires

Jupiter manager Philip Gibbs retires

Long-standing Jupiter manager Philip Gibbs will be retiring from the group. He has been gradually relinquishing his fund management duties. He will hand over management of the Absolute Return fund to incoming manager and former SWIP star James Clunie from 1 September. Gibbs’s last remaining mandate will be Jupiter Second Split, a split capital investment trust that winds up in October 2014 and in which we believe he has a considerable personal investment.

Gibbs’s performance in the Absolute Return Fund has been waning of late and we are positive about the move over to Clunie who is something of a guru in long-short UK equities. We already know the incoming manager well and see no reason to suspend the rating on the Absolute Return fund following the announcement of this change in manager.

2-star rating maintained.

The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you can get back less than you originally invested.
