    Scottish Mortgage manager to retire: should you stay or should you go?

    The news that James Anderson, manager of the £16.5bn Scottish Mortgage investment trust, is stepping down in April next year after 21 years in charge, will cause a headache for many DIY investors. The pioneering "growth" trust, which was an early investor in Tesla and Amazon, has made investors 1,530pc under Mr Anderson's leadership, almost six times the return from a global stock market tracker. It has deservedly become a regular feature in fund shop "most-bought" lists. Tom Slater, joint manager of the trust for the past six years, will take charge of Scottish Mortgage when Mr Anderson steps down, with Lawrence Burns becoming his deputy. So should investors stick with the new managers or start looking for an alternative place to invest their savings? Iain Scouller, of stock broker Stifel, said that given Mr Anderson's 39-year career as an investor at Baillie Gifford, the Edinburgh fund group behind Scottish Mortgage, the announcement of his retirement from the firm was not unexpected and his succession would be smooth. However, he argued that investors should take profits on Scottish Mortgage after its strong run of performance, returning 135pc in the past 12 months. “This is to ensure that investors do not become too heavily weighted in Scottish Mortgage shares,” he said. With the shares trading at close to their portfolio value, after briefly falling to a wider discount, he said it was the right time for investors to take some chips off table if the trust now occupied a large position in their portfolio.
