Barings hire to handle multi-asset investment for charities

Hand-shake-femaleBaring Asset Management has appointed Alison Huang as an investment manager in its multi-asset team, whose responsibilities include a segregated portfolio service for charities.

Huang joins Barings from TT International Investment Management, where she was an equity analyst. She has previously worked for medical science charity, the Wellcome Trust.

Barings' charity portfolio service manages over £1 billion (€1.2 billion) for charities that have more than £5 million to invest and claims its fees are lower than many common investment funds.

Barings' head of asset allocation Percival Stanton, said Huang's “strong financial modelling skills and appreciation of asset allocation will prove highly valuable as we continue to capitalise on our strong charities proposition”.
