Morningstar makes leadership appointments to investment management group for the EMEA region


Morningstar has made leadership appointments to the Morningstar Investment Management group for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.

Dan Kemp has been appointed Chief Investment Officer for Morningstar’s Investment Management group for the EMEA region. He replaces Daniel Needham, CFA, who became President and Chief Investment Officer for the Morningstar Investment Management group in January 2015. The company has also appointed Robin Johnson, CFA, as Head of Portfolio Management, EMEA. Both appointments are effective immediately.
Kemp and Johnson each bring almost two decades of investment experience to their new roles. Kemp joined Morningstar in 2014 as co-Head of Investment Consulting and Portfolio Management for Morningstar Investment Management in the EMEA region. He previously served with Albemarle Street Partners, an investment consultancy partnership he co-founded. In his new role, Kemp leads Morningstar’s 20-strong investment management team for the EMEA region, working with advisers and institutions to help them deliver world-class investment solutions to investors. Kemp reports to Needham.
Johnson joined Morningstar in 2007 and leads Morningstar’s portfolio management team across EMEA, reporting to Kemp. His remit includes oversight of the Morningstar OBSR Managed Portfolios Service, an adviser-channelled discretionary funds management offering for UK investors. Johnson is also portfolio manager for sub-advisory relationships across Europe. Before joining Morningstar, Johnson served with Mellon Global Investors and Bestinvest, an independent UK financial adviser.
“Dan and Robin are outstanding portfolio managers and advocates for end investors, committed to delivering great investment results for clients. Together they have had tremendous positive impact on the growth of our service offerings for our clients and I’m excited about these appointments,” says Needham. “Under Dan’s leadership, the EMEA investment team is well positioned to continue to deliver strong investment outcomes and provide valuable support to our business operations within EMEA.”
