Deutsche hires ex-GAM man to head EM equities
by Danielle Levy on Aug 19, 2013 at 10:20
Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has hired Pioneer Investments' head of emerging market equities Sean Taylor to oversee its strategies in this area.
London-based Taylor (pictured) joins as head of emerging market equities and will be responsible for Deutsche's strategies, products and investment teams around the world. The firm currently manages around €7.5 billion in emerging market equities. Taylor reports to Randy Brown and Asoka Woehrmann, co-chief investment officers.
Asoka Woehrmann, Co-CIO of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, added: 'Investing in emerging markets requires a high degree of skill, not least because of the influence of global volatility on the asset class' risk profile. Sean's deep knowledge of the country group -- acquired over more than 20 years -- allows him to take a holistic approach that incorporates global, local and sector viewpoints.'
Prior to Pioneer, Taylor was an investment director at GAM, where he ran global emerging and frontier markets funds and he also spent a seven-year spell at Société Générale Asset Management UK, where he headed the emerging market desk before becoming head of global equity.
Over the 12 months to the end of July Taylor's Italian-domiciled Pioneer Azionario Paesi Emergenti fund is down 2.98% versus a 2.29% rise by the MSCI Emerging Markets index, according to Lipper.
