An award-winning fund manager was found dead near his £ 3.5m house after he disappeared.

Guy Rushton, 36, who was married, was found in a barn near his home in Cranborne Chase, Wiltshire, after being found missing on May 22.

Rushton worked at Polar Capital, a London-based wealth management company, and had won industry awards, including 2018 fund manager of the year.

His British Absolute Equity Fund lost more than a third of its value – around £ 180m – in March as global stock markets suffered a major blow as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last month, his company announced that he was not well and that his £ 292 million fund, which was launched when he joined the company in 2014, would be dissolved as the Times says he will not be returning to work can.

In a letter to Polar Capital investors on April 15, it said: "The decision to terminate the fund was triggered by the poor health of each fund manager." The company added that his disease was not a coronavirus.

An investigation into his death started last week and police in Wiltshire said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

Rushton had a reputation for being one of the most productive talents in the industry, and colleagues said last night that they had "lost not only a passionate investor and a cheerful colleague, but also a dear friend".

A company spokeswoman added: “Guy Rushton's family told us that Guy had unfortunately died. Our thoughts are with his family, to whom we express our deepest condolences. & # 39;

It is believed that at the time of his death he was on sick leave and was neither on leave nor released.

Rushton attended St. Peter's School in York, an independent boarding school, before attending Cambridge University, where he graduated in 2005 with a medical and veterinary degree specializing in neuroscience.

Earlier this year, he and his wife Alannah, who had been married for five years, bought a £ 3.5 million mansion in Alvediston, Wiltshire that was furnished with 130 acres of land.

It is because mental health charities have asked the government to take measures to prevent an increase in suicides during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Zero Suicide Alliance, more than 500,000 people took a suicide prevention course in the first three weeks of this month alone.

During the last financial crisis, Wall Street and the City of London experienced an increase in suicides as the banking sector became crippled due to uncertainties.
