Born in London in 1945, Foster's in-depth knowledge of insurance companies means he adopts a bottom-up investment style for his Polar Capital Global Insurance Portfolio. The fund targets companies investing in the international insurance sector and aims to outperform the MSCI World Insurance Index.
