Schroders has appointed Dan McFetrich as a Global Sector specialist within the Global & International Equities team.
McFetrich will join the firm in April and will be based in London. He will assume global sector responsibility for industrials maximising his 14 years as an equity analyst, most recently at Fidelity Worldwide Investment where he had worked since 2008 as Senior Industrials Analyst.
Prior to this he held roles at Dresdner Kleinwort and Nomura Asset Management. Dan is a CFA charterholder and a qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA).
McFetrich will work alongside the team’s established group of seven Global Sector Specialists who provide global sector perspective and stock recommendations to the team’s portfolio managers.
He will report to Simon Webber, Lead Portfolio Manager for Schroders’ Global & International Equities Team along with the team’s other Global Sector Specialists.
This hire follows the appointment of Alex Tedder, who returned to Schroders as head of Global & International Equities in July 2014. As part of his role Alex will focus on expanding the team to create a world-class fundamental global equity capability at the firm.
Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager for Schroders’ Global & International Equities team, comments: “Dan brings with him broad and detailed knowledge of the industrials and related sectors and has demonstrated an ability to consistently identify strong stock ideas within the sector. His investment style and approach is aligned entirely with that of the Team and we are confident he will contribute significantly to the performance generation of the team”.
Alex Tedder, head of Global & International Equities at Schroders, comments: “Dan is a key hire for our team, he has a vast amount of experience within the industry and is an excellent fit with our existing Global Equities team.
“Global Equities continues to be a priority growth area for Schroders, we have built a strong team to enhance our offering and deliver performance for our clients over the long term. We will be looking to make additional hires in the near term to further enhance the capabilities of the team and strengthen our offering to clients.”
