Following their exit from Janus Henderson earlier this year, former colleagues of Glen Finegan have joined his newly established firm, Skerryvore Asset Management.
Stephen Deane, Nicholas Cowley, Michael Cahoon and Ian Tabberer departed Janus Henderson in the wake of Finegan's exit and will be joining him as portfolio managers at Skerryvore Asset Management.
They will also be joined by Ronan Kelleher as a portfolio manager, while Ben Lawson has been appointed head of dealing.
Finegan established Skerryvore in October this year in partnership with BennBridge, an investment company which currently partners with 12 boutiques globally to deliver actively managed equity funds.
Deane joins from Janus Henderson and brings with him nine years of industry experience across global and emerging markets. He has also worked for First State Stewart, Digital Barrier and Accenture.
Cowley brings more than two decades of industry experience, first becoming a fund manager in 2001 with Chiswell Associates. Most recently, he was an emerging markets investment manager at Janus Henderson.
Before Janus Henderson, Cahoon previously worked for Ashmore Group, and brings with him eight years of industry experience.
Tabberer was also previously on the emerging markets team at Janus Henderson and brings 17 years of financial experience. Prior to this he also held investment positions at Baillie Gifford and Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.
Kelleher brings nearly a decade of experience, having previously worked on global equity portfolios at Janus Henderson.
Finally, Lawson was previously head of dealing for Stewart Investors and comes with 13 years' experience of emerging markets.
Finegan said: "The team brings a wealth of expertise and experience in global emerging market equities portfolio management. I have worked with all six of them in the past and they share a dedicated investment focus and knowledge.
"They are an excellent fit for the Skerryvore business, which aims to generate long-term returns by investing in emerging markets with an unwavering focus on quality."
Group CEO Craig Bingham added: "The high-calibre Skerryvore team has a long-standing track record of delivering results for investors.
"Stephen, Nicholas, Ian, Michael, Ronan and Ben have a history of meeting investors' high expectations and we are delighted to welcome them to the team."
