Active investment commentary & analysis

Colin McLean Managing Director & CIO

Like many investors, I once focused entirely on fundamental analysis, and believed that investors behaved rationally. But, it became clear that this did not fully explain market behaviour.

Colin is the Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer at SVM. He founded SVM in 1990 following successful careers at FS Assurance, Scottish Provident and Templeton. He has helped shape global investment management and is a leading commentator and influencer on professionalism in the industry. Colin is past Chair of CFA UK and was Vice Chair of CFA Institute. He is a regular contributor to financial publications and guest on Bloomberg TV & Radio, CNBC and the BBC. He is a frequent conference speaker on investment, hedge funds and behavioural finance.
