Waverton adds two to direct equity research team


Waverton Investment Management has added two new senior hires to its team, in a move which further strengthens the firm’s investment capability.

Tineke Frikkee (pictured), joins as a UK equities specialist from Smith & Williamson, where she had been responsible for managing the UK Equity Income Fund and Global Growth Fund since 2013. Prior to this, Tineke spent 15 years at Newton Investment Management, managing Newton’s flagship GBP3 billion Higher Income Fund and GBP1.2 billion in other UK equity funds. 
Stefan Rheinwald joins as Head of Japanese Equity Research from Catalytic Investment Group in Singapore. He has 24 years of Japanese investment and research experience. He was a Japanese equity portfolio manager and Director at Foreign & Colonial (F&C) in London from 1994. This was followed by five years based in Tokyo as Head of Research and Japan strategist for CLSA. On his return to Europe, he launched and managed Japanese equity portfolios. Stefan is fully licensed by the Japan Securities Dealers Association.
Andrew Fleming, chief executive, Waverton Investment Management, says: “Tineke and Stefan are both highly-respected investors with excellent track records. With over 20 and 24 years’ experience respectively, they will be great additions to our investment team and reinforce our commitment to a strong global investment capability.”
Frikkee says: “I am very excited to be joining Waverton, which is a growing business and retains its reputation for first-class client service and an active approach to investments.”  
Stefan Rheinwald said: “There are attractive investment opportunities in Japan for experienced, active managers and it’s a pleasure to join the team at Waverton to share knowledge for the benefit of our clients.”
