Experienced global portfolio manager Paul Sloane is rejoining active equity specialist Martin Currie’s Global Emerging Markets (GEMs) team as a portfolio manager.

Martin Currie’s flagship emerging market equity strategy has outperformed the MSCI Emerging Markets Index over all time periods since the team began managing the strategy in October 2010.
Sloane brings a wealth of experience having previously worked at Martin Currie for 14 years, most recently as co-manager of the firm’s global alpha strategy. He joins on 13 August and will take on coverage of the financials sector.
Willie Watt (pictured), Chief Executive at Martin Currie, says: “It’s great to welcome Paul back to the company. He is a highly respected and experienced global stock picker whose investment philosophy of investing in quality businesses with strong growth potential is very much aligned to that of our Global Emerging Markets team.”
“Paul has the personal attributes and technical ability for this role and enjoyed a great working relationship with our GEMs team. Not only does he have deep expertise in portfolio-relevant stock research and significant knowledge across several global sectors, he also has the ability to form, communicate and challenge opinion. With these attributes, Paul will be a powerful addition to our collaborative team based approach. “
“As we continue to build our global distribution momentum, we are seeing strong demand for our established global emerging markets proposition from wholesale and institutional investors. Paul’s arrival is part of a programme of further building out the GEMs team to meet the needs of our international client base.”
This appointment follows four key strategic hires at the firm since the turn of the year, including the appointment of Zehrid Osmani from Blackrock as Head of the Global Long Term Unconstrained Team and Julian Ide as Head of Distribution and Strategy.
