GAM has appointed Adrian Gosden as an investment director to manage a new UK equity income fund that will be launched later this year.
Gosden has 20 years of investment experience, and for 18 of those he has managed income funds and mandates, most recently at Artemis. He is based in London and will work closely with GAM’s existing UK and pan-European equity teams.
GAM offers a wide range of equity funds, encompassing a breadth of styles including value, growth, GARP, income, contrarian and quality. GAM fund managers benefit from the freedom to follow their own investment philosophy and processes, with active conviction investment styles that are not wedded to benchmarks.
Group CEO Alexander S Friedman says: “Adrian Gosden is one of the UK’s most highly regarded equity income managers. We are excited to welcome such a talented investor to the Group and to further diversify our offering of specialised products to cater to clients’ needs. In today’s low growth environment, investors are increasingly interested in income-type products that offer yield and diversification benefits.”
Gosden says: “GAM has a long heritage of true active investing. I am delighted to join a Group with such a strong performance culture that gives portfolio managers the freedom to pursue the most promising investment opportunities, unrestricted by benchmarks or a house view.”
