Exclusive: NN IP senior portfolio manager departs

Tongai Kunorubwe, senior portfolio manager on the NN (L) Global High Dividend fund, has left the firm last June, InvestmentEurope can reveal.

The move was confirmed by a spokesperson of the Dutch asset manager who said Kunorubwe departed the company to pursue careers opportunities outside of NN Investment Partners.

Kunorubwe stayed less than a year in his role, having joined NN IP in August 2017, to work as a co-manager to Bruno Springael on the NN (L) Global High Dividend fund.

The fund had €654.5m in assets under management as of end May 2018 and invests in undervalued stocks with attractive and sustainable dividend yields. Lead portfolio manager Bruno Springael co-runs the strategy with Nicolas Simar, Manu Vandenbulck and Moudy El Khodr.

Prior to his tenure at NN IP, Kunorubwe worked as a portfolio manager and vice president at Goldman Sachs as well as a global equity analyst at Fidelity Investments. It is understood he returned to financial analysis.
