The article reports on the frequent changes in the manager's position of Skandia Investment Management Ltd. and the impact to its performance. In October 2008, Bestinvest Ltd. rated the fund low because of the frequent manager changes and poor performance of the alternate. However according to Skandia fund manager Ryan Hughes, an upturn in the performance was seen in the three and six-month figures reflecting their good performance despite the adviser's evaluation and low performance rate.
