Man GLG has appointed two European equity managers to its London office from w4i Investment Advisory Limited.
Firmino Morgado and Filipe Bergaña have been co-managing three investment strategies at W4i – the European Dividend, European Opportunities and Iberian Opportunities funds – and subject to regulatory approval these will not join Man GLG’s long-only suite of offerings. The strategies invest on the basis of high conviction and concentrated portfolios.
Morgado has some 25 years of fund management experience. He was previously at Fidelity International working on European and Iberian equity strategies. Before that, he worked at organisations including Capital Group and Goldman Sachs’ Whitewall Fund and F-Turismo Venture Capital.
Bergaña joined W4i in April 2015 from Och-Ziff. He also previously worked at Fidelity International, and before that at BlackRock in its European equity team and at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers.
