First State Investments today announced a raft of new appointments that tie in with its "inside out" ...
Today's news involves Lucien Hardman and Joanna Arbuthnot, who, respectively will take up positions as analyst reporting to Graham Hay, head of global technology and communications, and analyst reporting to Joe Anderson, head of global health and biotechnology.
The latest recruits follow recent appointments such as Neil Abbott, analyst for global consumer products and Jonathan Tyce, analyst for global financial services.
The "inside out" approach means these appointments have all been made by approaching people working within the sectors being analysed.
First State says this makes their new recruits deeply knowledgable about the companies they will be following.
For example, Neil Abbott has a background including 11 years with brewer Bass and Lucien Hardman has five years as a consultant with Oracle Corp.
Partner Insight: For Blackfinch, the arrival of its IHT portfolio services was a 'natural evolution' in the group's offering and points to an established track record of returning cash to investors.
