Henderson’s head of global equities exits

Henderson Global Investors has appointed Matthew Beesley as head of global equities following current head Neil Rogan’s decision to leave the industry to spend time with his family.

Beesley joins from Trinity Street Asset Management and will begin on April 2. He has previously worked for Mercury Asset Management and JP Morgan Asset Management.

Henderson head of equities Graham Kitchen says: “Whilst we are sorry that Rogan is leaving, we understand his decision and wish him all the best.”

“Global equities is an important part of our business. Beesley will boost the team not only in providing a new perspective, but also in terms of the experience he has managing money on behalf of a broad range of international clients and the strong track record he has built.”
