Sarasin Investment Management (SIM) - the London thematic fund management subsidiary of Swiss private Bank Sarasin - has appointed Ian Hogg as deputy chief investment officer.
In his new role Hogg will report to Guy Monson, the chief investment officer.
Before joining Sarasin in October last year to develop the institutional department, Hogg was a director of the Deutsche Bank’s asset management arm and prior to that was a partner of stockbroking firm Wood Mackenzie & Co. Commenting on the appointment, Monson said:
In the last few years [SIM] has grown its business on all fronts. We have added significantly to our investment team in London with additional fund managers and analysts. Accompanying this growth there is a constant requirement to both update and upgrade the whole investment process.”
He added: “Hogg has already set about making considerable improvements to our structure and processes and we are confident this will lead to greater operational efficiencies and performance in the future.”
