Brian P. Coyle, Peter V. Linnard and Rayon K. Ward were named growth equity research analysts at Loomis Sayles, according to a news release.
The positions are new.
The three come from Evergreen Investments and will reunite with Aziz Hamzaogullari, the growth equity portfolio management veteran Loomis hired on May 20 to lead its domestic large-cap growth efforts.
In the news release, Lauriann Kloppenburg, Loomis' chief investment officer, equities, said bringing on the three analysts “completes the process” of putting together a team that shares the same investment philosophy and approach.
Evergreen spokeswoman Lauren Sawyers said the three analysts won't be replaced, reflecting the depth of the teams the firm has put in place following Mr. Hamzaogullari's departure.
