The world’s greatest investors: Angela Lascelles
Angela Lascelles was told she could never go into investment management as she was female, says Matthew Partridge. So, she did it anyway.
Angela Lascelles' stockbroker father told her that she could never do what he did, as she was female. She decided to go into investment management anyway. After graduating in philosophy from Kings College London, she began as a graduate trainee at stockbroker Phillips & Drew. After four years, she moved to the buy side, managing pension funds and investment trusts. In 1986, she set up OLIM Investment Managers with Matthew Oakeshott, and ran the Value and Income Trust. She also runs SVS Albion OLIM UK Equity Income (since 2002) and S&W Charity Value and Income (since 2009).
