Nudgem, who joins in June, will begin setting up the strategies ahead of the fund’s launch in October and will be joined by Chris Lees in September.
The pair have worked together for the past seven years and were responsible for a global and an EAFE proposition at Barings Asset Management which outperformed the market.
They will be supported by JOHCM’s 15 regional specialist managers who have an average of 17 years’ experience.
Emerging markets are integral to Global and EAFE strategies and the Company says Nudgem who has acquired significant experience in this sector through the management of the £613m Barings Latin America fund.
JOHCM chief executive Nichola Pease says: “The global and EAFE strategies are a positive step forward for JOHCM and Nudgem’s appointment is an addition to what we are sure will be a very strong team.”
