OMGI’s Wells to discuss diversified alpha at Hamburg Summit
Justin Wells (pictured), investment director Global Equities at Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) will discuss diversified alpha at the InvestmentEurope Paneuropean Fund Selector Summit held in Hamburg on 7-9 October.
Wells will discuss how holding a combination of several types of stocks in the portfolio at any one time allows fund managers to develop a strategy of outperformance which OMGI describes as diversified alpha.

As a member of the Portfolio Management team, Wells helps evaluate the impact of macro-economic themes across the broader market environment, and participates in discussions around investment process and strategy.

Wells was formerly based in Asia as an Investment Advisor to the then CIO of Shinsei Bank, Tokyo, focusing on emerging market investment opportunities throughout Asia and EMEA.
