The Investment Team

Polar Capital’s first portfolio was a technology investment trust managed by the company’s founders. Today, the technology team, headed by Ben Rogoff and Nick Evans has grown to 10 – one of the largest, most experienced sector investment teams in Europe.

The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is an independent entity, separate from the investment manager (who is, in this case, Polar Capital). The Directors are responsible for the governance and operation of the trust, which includes selecting the investment manager. Independently elected, they perform a number of tasks such as holding the investment manager to account on performance, ensuring investors are treated fairly, and how the trust’s revenues are deployed on, for example, marketing and dividends.

The Investment Manager: Polar Capital

The company was founded in 2001 with an investment trust the first product that the company managed. Investment trusts are and remain an integral part of the company.
