Henderson Global Investors has strengthened its technology team with the hire of Graeme Clark as senior investment analyst. Graeme has over 13 years’ experience in technology equities, gained predominantly on the sell-side. Most recently he was at Jefferies International as senior analyst covering European software and IT Services. Prior to this he spent five years at Piper Jaffray, where he founded the software and IT services team which ultimately grew to a team of three analysts, the company said in a statement.
In addition, Niall Holleran, who joined Henderson in August 2012 as a trainee on the technology team has been promoted to research assistant. He will work alongside Graeme, investment analyst Ronan Kelleher and the funds’ managers Stuart O’Gorman and Ian Warmerdam. As part of this change, analysts Gordon Happell and Giles Tulloch have decided to leave Henderson.
Commenting on Graeme’s appointment and the team changes Ian Warmerdam says, “It is testament to the regard in which the Henderson technology team is held that we have been able to bring Graeme on board. His experience in the technology sector, garnered pre and post the fabled dot com boom and bust era, together with his broader financial markets and analytical experience, will stand our clients in good stead.
The five strong Henderson Technology team manages £2.57 billion (As at 31st March 2013 ) across a range of international clients.
