Stonehage Fleming adds one to equity management team

London-headquartered family-office Stonehage Fleming has named Mark Sloan (pictured) as director, equity research in the group’s equity management team.

He will be responsible for analysing a group of businesses that are either in Stonehage Fleming’s investment portfolio already, or those that should be considered for inclusion without restrictions in terms of sectors. Based in London, Sloan reports to Gerrit Smit.

Most recently, Sloan worked within the 4Factor team at Investec Asset Management as the global industrials analyst and sector portfolio manager during seven years. He also spent two years on analysing global consumer businesses.

Formerly, he was a global equity analyst with M&G Investment Management. Gerrit Smit, partner and head of Equity Management at Stonehage Fleming, said: “We are pleased to have attracted someone with Mark’s depth of research experience to join our Equity Management team. Mark arrives at Stonehage Fleming at a particularly exciting time following our decision to open our Global Best Ideas Equity Fund to institutional investors for the first time.

“As well as valuable training and experience at two excellent asset managers, Mark has an investment philosophy that is totally aligned with ours, which will add value as we continue to build our research and equity investment team.”

Stonehage Fleming advises on more than £35bn (€39.9bn) of assets and manages over £9.5bn (€10.8bn).
