GAM Adds Asia, China Strategies To Senior Manager

The Zurich-listed investment house is reshuffling the control of some of its key strategies.

GAM investment director Jian Shi Cortesi is adding more investment strategies to her existing responsibilities. The GAM China and GAM Asian strategies will come under her control. 

The new strategies add to her roles of managing the GAM Asia Focus and the GAM China Evolution equity strategies. 

The shift of the new responsibilities will be subject to regulatory approval. In the interim, Rob Mumford is in charge of running the strategies, GAM said.

Cortesi will work in collaboration with Swetha Ramachandran, investment director for GAM’s Luxury Brands strategy. She will be supported by Wendy Chen, senior analyst, as part of the wider collaboration within the global equities team led by Mark Hawtin.

Mumford will remain a member of the emerging markets equities team with a particular focus on its Sustainable EM (Emerging Market) Equity strategy. 

Cortesi, who will report to David Dowsett, global head of investments, will remain based in Switzerland.
