UK - Morley Fund Management has appointed Martin Cawthorne and Lloyd Whitworth as fund managers in its UK equities team.
The appointments bring Morley’s UK equities team back up to full strength, following an internal reorganisation at the firm which saw it split its UK equities team in two in a bid to deliver better investment performance for clients.
Cawthorne joins from Threadneedle where he was responsible for managing institutional portfolios. Prior to that, he was at Allied Dunbar and in total he has 19 years of investment experience.
Whitworth joins from JPMorgan Investment Manage-ment, where he was a UK and pan-European fund manager. Prior to that, he worked for Dresdner RCM and Allied Dunbar.
Chief investment officer Katherine Garrett-Cox said: “We now have the team firing on all cylinders to build a world class equity operation and deliver investment returns for our clients. All the individuals joining Morley bring great depth of experience, and are as passionate about the investment business as we are.”
Morley has also boosted its global convertibles capability with the appointment of SHAWN MATO as a research analyst. He will report to Morley convertible funds portfolio manager David Clott.
Mato joined the firm from Dresdner Kleinwort Wasser-stein in 2001 as a US equity analyst focusing on IT Software within Morley’s Boston office.
Clott said: “Shawn’s background in technology research and government bond trading will add significant depth to the team.”
