Gartmore has appointed two dedicated Pacific and emerging market analysts, James Johnstone and Andrew Marshall, writes Ruth Alexander.
As experienced emerging markets specialists, they will be active members of Gartmore's Pacific and emerging markets equity team, which has more than $1bn of funds under management and is headed by Philip Ehrmann. They will report to Christiane Pratsch, head of international research.
Johnstone joins Gartmore from Schroder Investment Management, where he has worked since 1996, initially as a graduate trainee and then, latterly, as the European emerging market technology and telecoms analyst.
At Gartmore, Johnstone will focus on the technology and telecom sectors, working closely with Gavin Cartledge, who is the global research analyst responsible for this sector.
Marshall was previously fund manager and analyst at Peru's Espirito Santo Latin Management, since 1999. Prior to this, he was head of equity research at Santander Investment, which is also Peru-based. He will concentrate on the financial sector at Gartmore and will work with Robert Murphy, who is the global research analyst for this particular sector.
The group has a team of 22 analysts in London: 13 pan-European, four that concentrate on global stocks, and five on the Pacific and emerging markets.
