Hermes Investment Management has announced that Oliver Leyland, CFA, is joining its London-based emerging markets investment team as head of Latin America and Senior Analyst.

Leyland joins from Mirae Asset Global Investments, where he was a senior Equity analyst based in New York covering Latin America and CEEMEA, as well as a member of the fund management team for GEM and global long-only equity products.

Prior to this, he had spent five years living in São Paulo, Brazil, where he was an Equity analyst covering Latin America for Mirae. Further to this, Leyland previously worked at Citi in London as an Equity analyst on its Pan-European Building and Construction team.

“Reporting to Gary Greenberg, head of Hermes Emerging Markets and Lead Portfolio Manager, the addition of Oliver brings the emerging markets team to nine and reinforces Hermes’ commitment to a responsible, disciplined and long-term approach to investing,” the company said.

Greenberg added: “Oliver joins our growing team with a wealth of Latin American experience at an interesting and critical time in the region’s development. His seven-plus years of experience covering Latin America, including his time in Brazil, will be invaluable as we continue to seek opportunities for investors in the region.”

The Hermes Emerging Markets portfolio was launched in 1993, giving it a respected track-record of over 20 years. The team’s approach combines top-down and bottom-up analysis to find quality companies trading at attractive valuations, in countries with conditions that are supportive to growth.
