Friday Boss: Fund manager Anthony Bolton

This week's Friday boss is Anthony Bolton - a legendary fund manager - who for years produced huge returns for investors in Fidelity's Special Situations Fund.

He was persuaded to come out of semi-retirement for one last challenge. Bringing his knack of finding value to the world's biggest new frontier - China.

Investors followed him but it did not work - three years after the fund launched investors have lost 14% of their money. Earlier this week he announced he will be retiring in April next year. He has described investing in China like looking for gold in a minefield.

The Today programme's Simon Jack asked him what he meant by that.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 21 June 2013.
