Henderson financials team exits & Peak relinquishes UK Alpha fund
by Danielle Levy on Jan 18, 2013 at 08:07
Focus on global equities and absolute return
The firm has also opted to bring together the Asia and emerging markets teams, sitting within its newly formed global equities division. Graham Kitchen will lead the newly merged team in the interim until a new head is appointed. Chris Palmer, Latin America manager, currently leads the emerging markets team, while John Crawford heads Asia.
Kitchen added that the overhaul of the equities team seeks to recognise its core strengths and the key areas it expects to grow looking ahead, not least global equity - where it hopes its Global Equity Income fund, run by Citywire A-rated Ben Lofthouse, can continue to gain traction. The global equity team also incorporates Stuart O'Gorman and Ian Warmerdam's global technology sub-division, global property securities under Patrick Sumner, global equity income headed by Alex Crooke, global equity under Beesley, alongside Japan.
The equities head also highlights absolute return, under Elms, as an area it hopes to expand looking ahead, alongside multi-asset, an area which has seen two new hires in the form of Paul O'Connor from Mercer and James de Bunsen from Armstrong Investment Managers.
'We have retained all key staff and our investment performance in equities and fixed income remains very strong. The new structure simplifies things and makes it clearer for clients to understand,' he added.
Adam McConkey's Volantis team, which specialises in UK small caps, will also remain a sub-division under the new structure.
