Shake-up of equities team

Fund managers leave Aberdeen Standard Investments

A number of fund managers have left Aberdeen Standard Investments following a shake-up of its equities unit.

Three are in the firm’s global equity team and include Kevin Troup and Ross Mathison in the Standard Life Global Equity Income team.

Mr Troup has been with Standard Life for almost eight years, joining the business from Martin Currie Investment Management.

Mr Mathison, who joined Standard Life in September 2009, has served in various roles at Standard Life including investment analyst and investment director.

A third global manager leaving is Jamie Ramos Martin, manager of the Standard Life Investments North American fund.

Standard Life Investments UK Equity High Income manager Karen McKellar is retiring from fund management.

The company said that following the merger of Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management its equity teams were now working together.

Significant investment has been made in its equity division to make the integration work.

Devan Kaloo (pictured), global head of equities, said: “The integration has been an opportunity to invest in our people and the tools that we believe will help our managers deliver.

“We have also been able to provide significant continuity in terms of how mandates are managed.

“We now have one of the deepest pools of talented investment professionals in the market, equipped with the tools and systems to meet the needs of our clients.”
