Video: UK investing is several decades behind the US — John Authers

Posted by Robin Powell on November 19, 2015

It’s funny how, throughout life, our paths cross with other people’s. More years ago than either of us care to remember, John Authers and I once competed for the editorship of the Oxford University Students’ Union magazine. We now find ourselves on the same side, as fairly critical observers of the global fund management industry.

John is Senior Investment Commentator at the FT, based in the US. I interviewed John on a recent visit to New York and started by asking him about the differences in the way that active management is perceived in Britain and the US.
