Sam Vecht

Born in the English capital in 1977, Sam Vecht studied International Relations and History at the London School of Economics. He joined BlackRock in 2000, where he is a managing director of long only and long-short funds. Sam concentrates primarily on emerging Europe and other frontier markets, adopting a contrarian investment style with a top-down overview. He does not use cash as a tactical strategy, and derivatives are employed opportunistically. Sam holds the CFA designation and cites football, chess and music as his primary interests.
