Newton Investment Management has further expanded its investment team with the appointment of Robert Stewart as a senior global fund manager, a newly created appointment.
Stewart will join Newton in January, along with Glenn Pratt - whose appointment was announced last week. Pratt, who joins from Fidelity, also fills a newly created position.
Stewart joins from Goldman Sachs Asset Management where he was a global portfolio manager, part of a team responsible for US$6 billion in assets under management. He spent his early career managing UK equities before moving to Japan in 1997.
On his return to the UK in 1999 Stewart was promoted to co-head of the European team before he became a global equity fund manager last year. At Newton, he will report to Jeff Munroe, chief investment officer.
"His experience of regional and global asset management will be a great complement to the investment team," notes Munroe.
