Ashburton Investments strengthens its London-based team with institutional appointment

Posted: 03/03/2014

Ashburton Investments has added to its London-based distribution team, focusing on the institutional market place, with the appointment of Swati Jain.

Swati's primary focus will be on the European market, specifically Switzerland, Germany and the Nordic countries. She brings with her a well-established network of contacts.

As part of its long-term growth strategy Ashburton Investments, part of the FirstRand Group, has repositioned its equity fund offering to pay particular attention to select emerging markets, in particular India and Africa, in addition to its global equity products.

Swati's appointment follows the launch of Ashburton Investment's UCITS IV Luxembourg SICAV last year and is part of a wider initiative to expand the distribution reach of its growing fund range. The SICAV platform launched with the Africa Equities Opportunities Fund followed by the Global Energy Fund in 2013.

Tim Diack, Head of International Distribution at Ashburton Investments, said:

“Swati has extensive experience and knowledge of the institutional market in the regions on which Ashburton Investment is strategically focussed. She will complement the team's strengths and is well placed to make a significant impact on the distribution of our growing range of emerging market products, which our institutional clients can really benefit from. We are delighted to have her join the team.”

Peter Bourne, Managing Director of Ashburton International, commented:

“Strengthening our London team is a key part of our long-term strategy to meet our clients' needs, through a product offering that offers more sources of return and takes advantage of the growth opportunities in our core markets.”
