About Dave Foord

Zimbabwe-born Dave Foord founded Foord Asset Management in 1981. His vision was to create ‘a no-nonsense investment house that puts the clients’ interests first, managing their money the way they would if they had our skills’. Foord and co-manager Bruce Ackerman apply this approach to their management of the Guernsey-domiciled Foord Investment Trust. Early in his career Foord enjoyed spells at Arthur Young & Co. and Ernst & Whinney before taking on an investment analyst role at Old Mutual in 1979. A year as an investment manager for share portfolios at National Mutual of Australasia followed before Foord founded his eponymous company. Foord makes the most of his life out of work and has a passion for sailing. Away from the office he can often be found exploring exotic destinations on his catamaran.
