I have this sentence: He managed it even though nobody trusted him.
Could you please tell me whether the bold sentence have similar meaning as the italic one?

Nobody trusted him, but nevertheless he managed it.

Thank you

    Yes the meanings are very similar. Context might make a difference, for example we don't know whether they didn't trust him to do it (because of his lack of experience) or whether they didn't trust him at all (because he was a lying criminal for example).
