The Fundamentals #8 – A profile of our investment team

Fundamental Asset Management Investment Team

In the eighth of our series – The Fundamentals – about going back to the basics of investing in AIM shares for Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning purposes, we look at the Fundamental Asset Management Investment Team.

Since 2004, Fundamental Asset Management portfolios have been managed by our two founders Chris Boxall and Stephen Drabwell.

Chris and Stephen are experienced investment managers who have been managing the portfolios in-house since inception. Chris and Stephen conduct all research supported by external analysts (former fund managers, private investors and business people).



Stephen Drabwell is a co-founder, major shareholder and director of Fundamental Asset Management. Stephen oversees the trading, asset allocation and operational aspects of managing the many AIM IHT portfolios that the company oversees. Prior to founding Fundamental, Stephen started his career at the investment bank, UBS in 1990. Following 9 successful years at UBS, which saw him progress to becoming a sales trader on the European portfolio trading desk, Stephen joined Washington Asset Management where he was senior trader for a US Long/short hedge fund. Stephen helped grow the fund from $30m to $250m before leaving in 2004 to start Fundamental.



Chris Boxall is a co-founder, major shareholder and director of Fundamental Asset Management. Chris qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1989 and has primary responsibility at Fundamental for company research and portfolio management for the firm’s equity portfolios, with particular focus on AIM. Prior to Fundamental Chris oversaw activities at the Washington Financial Group, where he was a key member of the investment management team of the Washington US Fund Ltd, a successful equity fund.
