Stuart Mitchell draws on more than 15 years' experience in European markets for the management of the St James's Place Continental European Fund. Born in Scotland in 1954, Mitchell studied Medieval History at St. Andrews University. He started out with Morgan Grenfell Asset Management in 1987 and worked his way up from European analyst to a director and head of European equities prior to joining J O Hambro Investment Management in 1998.
