Investec AM bolsters global equity team

Investec Asset Management has appointed Joanna Tucka as global healthcare analyst for its 4Factor Equity Team.

The team, co-headed by Mark Breedon and Rhynhardt Roodt, has established a 17-year track record of managing global and regional equities by using the 4Factor investment process. It is an active, bottom-up approach based on traditional and behavioural factors.

Tucka (pictured) joins Investec AM from Valiance where she worked as a senior healthcare analyst. Prior to that, she worked at Goldman Sachs where she covered the European large cap pharma and biotech sectors. Tucka also served at Terra Firma Capital Partners, working in both deal team and portfolio companies.

Rhynhardt Roodt, co-head of Investec 4Factor Global Equity Team, said: “Joanna brings an excellent track record in understanding this sector and her insight will be a great addition to our team. We are always seeking to add specialist skills into our team in order to better meet the requirements of our institutional and advisor clients around the world.”
