Anthony BoltonAnthony Bolton

Anthony Bolton managed one of the United Kingdom’s most successful and largest mutual funds, Fidelity Special Situations, from 1979 to 2007. Over that period the fund generated an annualized return of 20% (against some 8% for the FTSE All-Share Index). He graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in engineering before entering the City as an investment analyst at investment bank Keyser Ullman. In 1979 he was hired by Fidelity, the Boston-based investment group, as one of its first London-based investors, and he subsequently pursued a contrarian and bottom-up approach to investing, with immense success. In surveys of professional investors he is regularly named the fund manager most respected by his peers. Since stepping down from day-to-day fund management in December 2007, Bolton has focused on mentoring Fidelity’s younger fund managers and analysts and overseeing its investment process.
