Three senior portfolio managers have departed Standard Investments’ global equities team.
Jamie Ramos Martin, investment director within the global equity team, has decided to leave the firm to pursue other opportunities.
He was named on two Canadian-based mutual funds the Manulife Global Equity Unconstrained fund and Manulife Global Equity Unconstrained Class fund, which will now be managed by another Standard Life global equities portfolio manager, Donal Reynolds.
Meanwhile, Kevin Troup and Ross Mathison, co-portfolio managers of the Manulife Global Dividend Growth fund and Manulife Global Dividend Growth Class fund, have decided to retire and pursue other opportunities, respectively.
Troup, who has been with Standard Life for almost eight years, mainly managed global equity portfolios with a specialization in global equity income. Prior to Standard Life, he had worked at Martin Currie Investment Management for seven years and Scottish Life for five years.
Mathison, who joined Standard Life in September 2009, has served in various roles at Standard Life including investment analyst and investment director.
As a result of Troup and Mathison’s departures, Standard Life’s Dominic Byrne and Reynolds will take over portfolio management responsibilities for the two Manulife funds.
Standard Life Investments and Aberdeen Asset Management agreed to a $13.5 billion merger in March last year.
