Ryan Hughes, AJ Bell's Head of Fund Selection, sets out the key information you need to consider in order to successfully select fund managers, before going on to discuss whether the investment process is more of an art or a science.

As well as talking through the different approaches to research, he also highlights the key attributes of successful fund managers, looking at issues like investor psychology and some of the common behavioural problems that investors face.

The value of investments can go down as well as up and your client may not get back their original investment.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and some investments need to be held for the long term.
