Premier Miton Investors hires manager for new European equity income fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Premier Miton Investors has appointed Will James to manage a new European equity income fund.

James was previously Deputy Head of European Equities at Aberdeen Standard Investments and a manager of the ASI Europe ex UK Income Equity Fund.
 
He will work closely with Premier Miton’s highly regarded equity team led by Gervais Williams. Further details of the new Premier Miton European equity income fund, which will be subject to regulatory approval, will be announced shortly.
 
The search by investors for attractive sources of long-term income remains an enduring and key investment theme. European equity markets offer a broad, deep and exciting set of investment opportunities for both attractive dividends and dividend growth across large, medium and small companies.
 
Premier Miton’s new equity income fund will offer investors access to this wide range of investment opportunities by applying an active, bottom up, through-cycle approach to equity income investing, while ensuring that key ESG factors are integrated across the investment process.
 
The new fund will complement Premier Miton’s existing range of equity income funds, including UK equity income and global sustainable equity income focused strategies.
 
James says: “I am excited to be joining Premier Miton Investors to launch a new European equity income fund. I am looking forward to working as part of Premier Miton Investors’ impressive and successful equities team. This is a fascinating time to be a European equity income manager.  As the recovery, post the Covid-19 pandemic, comes through in Europe, the potential for dividends and dividend growth is as attractive as I can remember it in my years as an equity income fund manager. Europe has been, and I believe will continue to be, an exceptional region in which active and engaged equity income investing can thrive.”

Neil Birrell, Chief Investment Officer, Premier Miton, says: “We are delighted that Will James is joining our investment team to launch a European equity income fund. Will is an experienced and highly regarded European equity income fund manager and has built a very strong track record for performance and raising AUM in this area. Over the last year or so we have hired a number of high quality fund managers into our fixed income and UK equity income teams, as well as hiring a new global sustainable fund manager and global smaller companies team. The addition of Will is another example of our intention to continue to develop and grow our business, and gives us the opportunity to offer our clients a broader range of high quality, relevant, active investment funds.”
