The move followed a managers’ reshuffle at the fund management giant within its US equity divisions that started in March.

The BlackRock fund is now managed by Andrew Swan and Gordon Fraser.

Patrick Cadell, who was fund manager and partner at Liontrust for two years, joined the emerging market specialist manager in October, according to his LinkedIn profile.

A document uploaded to the Morningstar library, shows Shah and Cadell will manage the firm’s bottom-up Emerging Markets Global Small-Cap Equity fund from November.

Ashmore declined to comment.
