Six equity fund managers in the Aberdeen Standard Investments equity division have left the firm following the integration of the Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life Investments equities teams.
Aberdeen Standard Investments has completed the integration of its equity division on the back of the merger of Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life Investments in August 2017, led by global head of equities Devan Kaloo.
Kevin Troup, Ross Mathison and Jaime Ramos Martin have all left the global equities team.
Troup, who is retiring from fund management, ran the Global Equity Income fund while Mathison was deputy manager. Ramos Martin was a manager on the North American fund.
These funds have been taken over by Dominic Byrne, deputy head of global equities, and Donal Reynolds, senior vice-president for global equity.
Joanna McIntyre, Tony Hood and Euan Sanderson will also be joining the global equity team from Aberdeen Standard Investments' regional equity teams.
On the UK equities side, Karen McKellar has chosen to retire while Henry Flockhart and Adam McInally will be leaving the firm.
McKellar, who joined Standard Life Investments in 1995, managed the UK Equity High Income fund, which will be taken over by Iain Pyle.
McInally and Flockhart, who joined from Matterley Asset Management in 2010 and took over the fund from Ed Legget, ran the UK Equity High Alpha fund and UK Equity Growth fund, which will be taken over by Frederik Nassauer and Andrew Millington respectively.
Charlie Luke, Georgina Cooper, Louise Kernohan and Romney Fox have all joined the Aberdeen Standard Investments UK equities team from the Aberdeen Pan-European equities division.
Millington remains the head of UK equities with Lesley Duncan as deputy head.
Kaloo said: "The integration has been an opportunity to invest in our people and the tools that we believe will help our managers deliver.
"We have also been able to provide significant continuity in terms of how mandates are managed. We now have one of the deepest pools of talented investment professionals in the market, equipped with the tools and systems to meet the needs of our clients."
