UK - The Universities Superannuation Scheme has boosted its global emerging markets team with three hires.
Carmel Peters, Danila Gallarato and Chris Shale join the £21bn pension scheme.
Peters and Shale arrive from RWC Partners, while Gallarato was previously at the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.
Peters will lead a combined GEMS/Asia unit, incorporating USS's existing four person Asia Pacific ex-Japan team.
Peters has been investing in Asia and emerging markets for 25 years. She began her investment career with Rothschild Asset Management in Asia, and has since held senior roles at Sofaer Capital Research.
Gallarto has more than 15 years experience in the financial sector, including 10 years managing emerging market potfolios. Prior to joining the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority in 2007, Gallarto was director of emerging markets at fund manager Hermes.
Shale also joins from RWC, where he worked on Asia Pacific ex Japan markets. He has more than 15 years of investment experience, including senior roles at Sofaer Capital, Collins Stewart and Rothschild.
USS chief investment officer Roger Gray commented: "Carmel, Danila and Chris bring great experience and calibre to our organisation, enabling us to strengthen further our Asian capability and to take a global approach to the varied opportunities across the full range of emerging markets."
