John Millar, the Stewart Ivory European fund manager appointed head of Europe following the merger with Colonial First State Investments, has resigned, writes Jenne Mannion.
He is to join Martin Currie, where he will work on the Japan team with Michael Thomas. Jimmy Burns, who manages the European Smaller Companies fund at Stewart Ivory, will be acting head of Europe until a replacement is found.
In other developments, Anja Balfour, previously Japan fund manager at Stewart Ivory, has departed, after the new company decided to base its Japan desk in London.
Meanwhile, chief executive of Colonial First State, started his new role last week. Roberts Adams was previously general manager at Colonial First State in Sydney.
He replaces John Thomson, formerly chief executive of Stewart Ivory, who departed in May when the changes were announced.
