Mark Julio, formerly a global emerging market equities manager at Ignis, has joined Sarasin & Partners.
‘Mark’s experience in analysing and managing emerging market assets will prove invaluable as we continue to strengthen our global thematic investment team and our emerging market coverage,’ commented Guy Monson, Sarasin’s managing partner (pictured).
‘Significantly, Mark joins at a time when we see long term thematic opportunities emerging in the restructuring of state owned enterprises, the growing strength of emerging market franchises as well as key security of supply opportunities in food, energy and minerals.
'His experience will also help in harnessing growing dividend flows from the emerging world which are increasingly important for the equity income mandates of our charities and private investors.’
Prior to Ignis, Julio worked at Baring Asset Management and HSBC Global Banking and Markets.
