Schroders has appointed Rory Bateman as head of European equities.
Bateman will continue to have responsibility for core European equity portfolios having joined the firm in 2008 to manage European institutional portfolios. He replaces Gary Clarke, who left the firm in May to join JP Morgan.
The appointment follows Martin Skanberg’s as manager of Schroder ISF Euro equity fund and Jamie Lowry as manager of Schroder ISF European equity alpha fund earlier this year.
Bateman will report to global head of equities Ken Lambden.
Lambden says: “We are extremely pleased that Rory has taken on this role and expect the transition will be implemented seamlessly. Rory has already played a key managerial role in the team since joining us and I am confident that he will continue to deliver strong performance and a high quality service for our investors.”
