Kames Capital hires ex-Baillie Gifford North America manager

Kames Capital has appointed former Baillie Gifford analyst Carolyn Bell as an investment manager on its North American equities team.

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.
