Geffen leaves Liontrust amid global equity restructure

Liontrust's head of equities Robin Geffen is set to leave the firm amid a consolidation of the global equities team.

In an announcement to the stock exchange this morning (February 8) the asset manager said the global equity team will become part of the global fundamental team with immediate effect. 

The global equity investment team will now report to Tom Record, while Geffen will leave the company “in due course”.

Record is responsible for global equities within the newly enlarged global fundamental team.

The global technology fund however, will move to the global innovation team.

According to Liontrust, the move aims to deliver greater strategic focus over the next few years.

Liontrust chief executive John Ions thanked Geffen for his “contribution and commitment to managing the funds for investors over the past four years at Liontrust after a long career.”

He added: “Global equities are a core asset class for investors and we offer a strong proposition across our investment teams. Tom Record has a long track record, having been an investment manager of international equities since 2004."
