GAM appoints new emerging markets fund manager
GAM announced today the appointment of Tim Love to the position of Investment Director and Joaquim Nogueira to the position of Investment Manager.
Love and Nogueira join GAM’s London office to manage a UCITS product in the GAM Star range, an actively-managed long emerging markets equity fund expected to launch in the first quarter of 2012. The fund aims to profit from the inherent growth potential in emerging market economies.
Both join from CQS where they managed a long/short emerging market equity portfolio. Love and Nogueira bring more than 31 years of investment experience to GAM alongside a wealth of region-specific knowledge and a dynamic stock-picking investment style.
Love reports to David M. Solo, Chief Executive Officer at GAM and Nogueira will report to Tim Love in his role as Investment Manager.
Commenting on the appointments, David M. Solo said: “Emerging market equities present a compelling investment case given the breadth of opportunities to be potentially exploited – for example strong and differing growth rates across emerging market countries and the impact on both currencies and equity valuations. Tim and Joaquim’s active management approach has a track record of being able to capture these opportunities and we are delighted to have them on board.”
