About Brett Diment

Born in Yorkshire in 1970, Brett Diment moved to London to obtain his BSc in Economics at LSE. He joined Morgan Grenfell shortly after it was acquired by Deutsche Bank and he ascended from his position as analyst to portfolio manager before becoming head of emerging market debt. In 2005 Brett took up the same role at Aberdeen Asset Management where he currently runs four emerging market bond funds. He cites his fundamental-driven investment approach, supplemented by market technical analysis, as key to understanding and pricing the relevant risk factors within emerging markets. In line with his position at Aberdeen, Brett is a member of the Trade Association for the Emerging Markets, and in his free time he enjoys football and attending the theatre.
