Boston-based impact investor Trillium Asset Management opened its UK business, making key senior hires to spearhead the launch of global ESG equity strategies.
The strategies will be led by Ian Warmerdam, who joins from Janus Henderson after 18 years there, most recently as director of global equities.
Warmerdam will be joined by Jamie Mariani, who has been appointed as portfolio manager. His experience includes 11 years at Martin Currie where he was head of research focused on global equities.
The firm, part of Perpetual Asset Management, has also appointed Graham Kitchen, another former Janus Henderson employee, as chairman of the UK board.
Kitchen worked at Janus Henderson for over 14 years managing equities portfolios and was most recently global head of equities.
The team will be based in Edinburgh with support from a distribution and compliance team based in London and Edinburgh.
Matt Patsky, CEO and portfolio manager at Trillium, said: “While Trillium has worked with European-based distribution partners for nearly a decade, we are thrilled to be establishing a physical presence and have a team on the ground in the UK.
