About Christopher Murphy

Christopher Murphy sees the world according to GARP (growth at reasonable price) and the successful adoption of this investment approach has enabled him to hold his own among some of the shrewdest of peers. Murphy's formula targets companies he believes can achieve long-term success and he prefers groups to grow organically rather than through acquisition. He also hones in on the quality of a firm's management, its financial power, the industry in which it operates and its competitive position. Born in 1966, Murphy read physics at Cardiff University and began his investment career in 1988 as a trainee equity analyst at US broker Shearson Lehman. Two years later he took his analytical skills to James Capel where he advised institutional investors, sales teams and traders. Following his illustrious 14 year career at AXA Framlington, Chris joined Norwich Union Collective Investments (now Aviva Investments) in 2006, where he has run both the UK Equity and the Income and Growth funds since December 2006.
