Bell will have responsibility for idea generation and portfolio management across North American equities and report to Kames’ head of North American Equities, Marcus Chandler. She has previously worked as an investment analyst at Baillie Gifford.
‘Carolyn brings a breadth of experience across a diverse range of international and domestic equity markets and her appointment will greatly enhance our international equity capabilities,' Chandler said.
Chandler runs the Kames US equities fund, which according to Citywire data has risen 34.5% in the past three years, making it 98th out of 111 funds in the North America equity sector.
