Sarasin appoints co-manager to global dividend fund

Sarasin and Partners, a global investment manager with £21 billion in assets under management, has appointed Nikki Martin as co-manager of the Sarasin Global Dividend fund.

Martin will work alongside co-manager and head of global equities Jeremy Thomas to manage the fund, which aims to provide income and long-term capital growth by investing in between 40 and 60 stocks.

In her new role, Martin will identify high-quality, cash generative and sustainable businesses that are in a strong position to pay rising dividends well into the future, Sarasin said.

Thomas said: “As we enter a period of tightening central bank policy, businesses across the world will need strong balance sheets and good free cash flow to navigate the increasingly volatile macroeconomic environment.

“With Nikki’s support and expertise, our strategy is well positioned to identify such businesses and continue delivering consistent income for our investors.”

Prior to joining Sarasin & Partners in 2021, Martin worked for Trium Capital, managing a pan-European neutral long/short UCTIS fund.

She has also worked at Scottish Widows, GAM and BlueCrest Capital Management.

Martin added: “I share the team’s conviction in the importance of thematic investing, particularly as the transition to a more digital, automated and sustainable world gains further traction.”
