Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) has bolstered its global developed markets team after appointing US equity specialists Nick Ford and Simon Moss.
Ford and Moss, who will be based in Edinburgh reporting to head of global developed markets, Ian Vose, have both been hired as investment directors.
Ford joins from F&C where he was a director and investment manager with responsibility for co-managing the US Smaller Companies fund. Previously, he was at Gartmore, where he co-managed the US Smaller Companies fund for seven years.
Moss joins SWIP from Legal and General Investment Management's US equity team, having previously spent eight years at Gartmore Investment Management, where he worked alongside Nick Ford in the UK and US, managing US equity funds for retail and institutional clients.
Ian Vose says: “We are delighted to have attracted two US equity specialists of Nick and Simon's calibre to the team.
“Nick is a well respected US small cap specialist who will bring his expertise to SWIP's small and large cap funds, while Simon has a proven record of out-performance underpinned by strong stock picking skills.
“Together with Ian Tabberer, we now have in place a strong core team of three US specialists who will be a real asset to SWIP's global developed markets team as we look to develop our fund capabilities for our UK and international clients”
