Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) has bolstered its Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) team with the appointment of Bryan Collings as its head and Andrew Ness as a fund manager.
Collings, who spent four years as head of an EMEA team at WESTLB Asset Management, will oversee DeAM's institutional and retail efforts for EMEA equities. He has more than 11 years' experience as a manager of South African equities and will report to Matt Linsey, who heads DeAM's emerging markets team in London.
Ness, who starts next week, has six years' experience in managing EMEA equities at Murray Johnstone. He will report jointly to both Collings and Linsey.
Matt Linsey, head of the emerging markets at DeAM said; I have been working for some time to get the right people into the team in London, and I'm confident that Bryan and Andrew will be valuable additions.
