Jeremy Hall was named investment director for global equities at Nikko Asset Management, said a spokeswoman.
Mr. Hall focuses on high-conviction and unconstrained global equity long-only portfolios. He replaced a portfolio manager who left Nikko to pursue a career change, the spokeswoman added. She declined to disclose the name.
"(Mr. Hall) has a long track record of undertaking research and picking stocks within high-conviction equity portfolios. His investment style is highly aligned with the team's focus on future quality firms," said William Low, head of global equity at the firm, in a news release.
Mr. Hall was previously partner and investment manager at Cartesian Capital Partners, where he was responsible for U.K. equity long and long/short funds. A spokesman could not be reached to comment about a replacement. Two of the Cartesian funds were merged with Sanditon Asset Management funds, a Sanditon spokeswoman said, but no Cartesian employees joined Sanditon.
Nikko Asset Management has $182.7 billion in assets under management.
