By Spear's

After a ‘meandering’ career which has taken him from teaching in China to hedge funds via the civil service and a Westminster think tank, John Butters joined Weatherbys in 2016. He has since set up an in-house investment service specialising in passive portfolios and ‘smart beta’. He is passionate about a rational, academic approach to portfolio construction.

‘Everyone talks about stock selection and tactical asset allocation, whereas it’s just about getting the right components in your portfolio to start with,’ he says.

Butters has also written a book, Rational Macro, which applies philosophy and modern science to market forecasting.
