Fund manager Simon Brazier leaves Schroders

Schroder UK equity fund manager Simon Brazier has left the firm after 11 years.

Brazier has left to take a senior management position at another asset management firm with his duties on the £543m fund passing to both Ed Meier and Errol Francis.

He joined Schroders in 1998 and has been part of the UK equity team since 2002 having previously had responsibility for charity and private bank portfolios.

Brazier took on the management of the Schroder UK Equity fund from Christopher Metcalfe in April 2006, the fund is currently second quartile in the IMA UK all companies sector over three years to December 14, having fallen 5.3 per cent.

Schroders managing director of UK intermediary business Robin Stoakley says: “I can confirm that Simon has left to take a senior position at another asset manager in London. The UK equity fund and offshore fund will pass to Ed Meier and Errol Francis, both of whom are experienced managers. We are sorry to see Simon go and wish him all the best in the future.”
