Morningstar adds director to investment management group


Morningstar Investment Management Europe has appointed Gavin Corr to the role of director, responsible for key client relationships for the company’s investment management business in the UK and Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.

Corr (pictured) has over 25 years of financial services experience, managing institutional pension funds, in addition to retail unit trusts and US-based mutual funds.
Before joining Morningstar, he held several senior investment positions both as an equity fund manager with a focus on pan-European equities and as a member of various asset allocation committees.
Corr also served as managing director, pan-European equities for BlackRock Investment Management, as senior fund manager at Aviva Investors, and chief investment director, European equities, for American Express Asset Management. Most recently, he was a non-executive director and asset allocation committee member at Broadstone Wealth Management.
“Gavin’s significant exposure to a range of investment strategies is an excellent fit for our investment management offerings and further strengthens our team’s core capabilities in asset allocation, manager selection, and portfolio construction,” says Ruli Viljoen, head of manager selection for Morningstar Investment Management Europe. “He has managed money through a number of investment cycles and will make key contributions to our work in respect to asset allocation. Gavin is superbly placed to bring excellence in his support of our clients in the region, and we are pleased to welcome him to the team.”
Morningstar’s 20-strong EMEA investment team works with advisers and professional investors in the UK and EMEA region to deliver market-leading investment solutions supported by Morningstar’s research-driven asset allocation, manager selection, and portfolio construction capabilities.
In 2013, the company launched Morningstar Managed Portfolios, its discretionary investment management offering for UK investors.
