GLG appoints duo to technology equity fund

GLG has named Phil Pearson and Anthony Burton as managers of the £41m GLG technology equity fund.

The pair replace Hugh Grieves who has left the business following GLGs recent acquisition of SGAM UK.

Pearson and Burton have a combined 28 years experience of investing in the technology sector. Pearson joined GLG in 2001 having previously worked at UBS Asset Management and M&G. Burton initially worked at Nomura before heading Merrill Lynch’s global technology sales in Europe.

The pair have run GLG’s global TMT research and technology assets since mid-2008.

GLG joint head of retail Andrew Thatcher: “Phil and Anthony are two of the most talented and experienced fund managers operating in the technology sector. They have worked closely together for many years and during that time have built up an impressive track record of delivering positive returns to investors, something that will be welcomed by existing investors of the GLG technology equity Fund.”
