Man GLG has hired European equity duo Firmino Morgado and Filipe Bergaña from W4i Investment Advisory.
The team will bring their three investment strategies with them to Man GLG: the W4i European Dividend fund, W4i European Opportunities and W4i Iberian Opportunities.
Man GLG said Mr Morgado and Mr Bergaña would be based out of its London office, running the three strategies based on their approach of constructing “high conviction, concentrated portfolio[s] of attractively valued companies that have the potential to deliver sustainable growth over the business cycle”.
Mr Morgado had founded W4i in 2015, having previously spent 12 years at Fidelity International, focusing on European and Iberian equities.
Mr Bergaña, who had joined W4i in April 2015 from Och-Ziff, had also previously worked for Fidelity International for four years, having previously held roles at BlackRock and Merrill Lynch Investment Managers.
