SLI adds two hires to European equities team

Standard Life Investments has bolstered its European equities team with two hires.

Jonathan Fearon has been appointed manager of the Standard Life Investments European Equity Growth fund. He will also run the European Equity component of the Global Advantage fund and provide analysis of the European banking sector. Fearon joins from Ignis Asset Management, where he managed two European Equity funds.

Kay Eyre, who has been running the Standard Life Investments European Equity Growth fund alongside head of European equities Stan Pearson since the fund’s former manager Jaime Ramos Martin left the firm in April, will remain as deputy manager.

Meanwhile, Tom Dorner has been recruited as investment director in the European Equities team, where he will be responsible for analysing a number of sectors including insurance companies. Dorner joins from Citigroup where he was director of the European insurance sector.

Both Fearon and Dorner will report to Will James, manager of the Standard Life Investments European Equity Income fund.

Pearson says: “These senior appointments will strengthen the European equities team, reflecting further investment in our capabilities to help us continue to achieve strong performance and returns for our clients. 

“Both Tom and Jonathan bring many years of investment experience on both the sell-side and buy-side. I welcome them to the team and very much look forward to working closely with them.”
