Ashburton Investments has strengthened its multi asset team with the appointment of Marianna Georgakopoulou as Multi Asset Strategist.

Marianna joined Ashburton Investments in November and will be looking to take advantage of opportunities in both developed and emerging markets on a cross asset basis. This reflects the global approach Ashburton takes to investing across asset classes where in-depth macro analysis drives its investment process.

As a member of the multi asset team, Marianna will join Derry Pickford, Global Macro Strategist in London, working closely with the wider team of Ashburton investment managers who include Jonathan Schiessl, Head of Equities and currently Chair of the Multi Asset Committee, Nick Lee, Head of Portfolio Management in Jersey, and in South Africa, Mark Appleton, South Africa Strategist, and Tony Cadle, Head of Portfolio Construction.

Marianna has worked in the investment industry for over 10 years. Prior to Ashburton, she worked at Pivot Capital Management (Monaco) investing under a global macro mandate and before that London-based at Tenax Capital, investing in global financials across the capital structure with a sovereign overlay.

Marianna started her career in Goldman Sachs. Marianna has degrees in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (Panteion University, Athens) and in Molecular Biology (University College London).

Peter Bourne, Managing Director, Ashburton Investments Jersey, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Marianna to our team. Her macro, multi asset and hedge fund expertise will bring significant benefit to Ashburton Investments and to our clients and will build on Ashburton’s 32 year track record in multi asset investing. The appointment of Marianna takes Ashburton from strength to strength.”
