Martin Currie restructures leadership team

Related Topics

Martin Currie has unveiled a new investment team leadership structure, which the active equity specialist says focuses on the next stage of delivering its growth ambitions. 

The firm says the changes will enable a higher level of participation for the investors running strategies within the business and draws upon the strength of this highly experienced team.
 
The Investment Executive will be chaired by CEO Willie Watt (pictured)), who will continue to have accountability for oversight and monitoring of investment process and performance, based on Martin Currie’s existing governance model. Oversight continues to be supported by Jeff Casson (Head of Investment Process) and Paul Hughes (Head of Investment Risk, Trading and Quant). Both are existing members of the Investment Executive. 
 
As part of this change John Pickard will leave the firm.
 
Pickard played an important role in the development of Martin Currie’s capabilities over the last eight years. During his tenure, a substantial number of process enhancements were implemented across the investment floor.  These enhancements contributed to investment teams delivering strong performance across their range of strategies, particularly over the most recent three year period.  As such, the Firm is well positioned to enter its next growth phase, John leaves with Martin Currie’s best wishes.
 
This change follows four key strategic hires at the firm since the turn of the year, including the appointment of Zehrid Osmani, as Head of the Global Long Term Unconstrained Team and Julian Ide as Head of Distribution and Strategy.
 
The new structure and key hires will enable Martin Currie’s investment leaders to focus on delivering outstanding solutions for our global client base.
