Steven Andrew

As a fund manager at M&G, Steven Andrew is responsible for the M&G Episode Income Fund, which he has run since first becoming a fund manager for the company in 2010. The fund follows a top-down investment style, focusing on macro factors with a behavioural finance overlay. This investment philosophy has allowed the fund to offer returns in various market conditions, and Andrew believes that the fund is robust enough to continue to do so in the future.
