UK - Dino Fuschillo has resigned today as head of European equities at SG Asset Management in London to join Edinburgh-based Martin Currie as a director.
Reporting to Martin Currie's CIO, James Fairweather, Fuschillo will take ownership of Martin Currie's European products.
Fuschillo spent four years at SG Asset Management, and before that eight at Lazard. He co-managed the £52m SG Europe Equity Fund and the £94m SocGen European Growth Trust
James Fairweather said: Dino is a proven portfolio manager in an area we want to build up. He is someone who will complement and enhance what is already a strong team. We said we wanted to create a distinctive, world-class investment engine. With Mike McNaught-Davis joining us from F&C, Wendy Anderson from Lehman Brothers and David Urch from Merrill Lynch, Dino's appointment speaks louder than words.”
