Edward Cole, who joins from Finisterre Capital, will start at Carmignac Gestion on 4 February. His arrival means the emerging equities team, which is headed by Simon Pickard, now has five fully dedicated members.
Cole is expected to contribute to one of the firm’s key investment themes – improving living standards in emerging markets – and will support the Carmignac Emergents, Carmignac Emerging Discovery and Carmignac Emerging Patrimoine funds.
The analyst has covered emerging market equities for 12 years. He was most recently at Finisterre Capital and worked at Ashmore Group prior to this, managing emerging markets funds at both companies. Earlier in his career, Cole was an equity strategist at JP Morgan Securities.
