Gartmore has appointed Nick Anderson as head of research for global equities.
The new role will see Anderson work closely with Neil Rogan on the flagship Gartmore global focus fund.
The roles of head of research and investment director had previously been combined by Simon Melluish, who becomes investment director on a full time basis.
Anderson is expected to join in September and has over 20 years’ investment industry experience, including at Insight Investment where he was head of equity research for the UK. He was previously head of pan European research at Schroders Investment Management.
