London-headquartered RWC Partners has recruited Nick Clay to lead a new global equity income team.
He joins from Newton, where he has led the global equity income team since 2015.
Clay will be joined by new hires Andrew MacKirdy, Robert Canepa-Anson, and Colin Rutter – all from Newton – as additional members of the team.
Dan Mannix, chief executive of RWC Partners, said: “Although we find ourselves living in extraordinary times, our structure allows us to focus on the longer term.”
Mannix highlighted Clay’s experience in equities and added: “We believe equity income strategies are an increasingly sought-after asset class following the collapse in bond yields globally.”
