Liontrust hires head of global equities

Ex-Gam Investments global equities head Mark Hawtin has joined Asset manager  Liontrust as the new head of its global equities team.

Hawtin has 40 years of investment experience and before joining Liontrust was investment director at GAM Investments, where he was head of global equities managing global equity long only and long/short funds.

David Goodman, Kevin Kruczynski and Pieran Maru, who were part of Mark’s team at GAM, have also joined the global equities team at Liontrust. The team is taking on the management of a range of Liontrust global equity funds.

Mark Hawtin and David Goodman have also been appointed as sub-investment managers of the GAM Star Alpha Technology Fund, which will move to Liontrust in due course.

John Ions, CEO of Liontrust Asset Management commented: Mark and his team align with the Liontrust investment approach of active management through the application of a rigorous investment process, long-term investing, high-conviction portfolios and engagement with companies and clients. This is a significant addition to Liontrust given the demand for global equities from clients in the UK and internationally.

Hawtin added: We look forward to extending the product offering at a time when the global equity opportunity is so great. My experience of running global funds at Marshall Wace and then GAM will serve us well as we navigate a period marked by unprecedented levels of change caused by structural disruption as well as geopolitical uncertainty.
