Nicholas Cunningham will become deputy fund manager on the global listed infrastructure and global themes strategies at M&G
M&G Investments today announces the expansion of its global equity team’s capabilities, with new dedicated resources being added to the global listed infrastructure and global themes strategies.
Nicholas Cunningham will become deputy fund manager on the global listed infrastructure and global themes strategies and will work closely alongside Alex Araujo from January, subject to regulatory approval. With more than 16 years of experience gained primarily in the Asia Pacific region, Nicholas joins the team with a wealth of knowledge in the industrials and infrastructure sectors. Meanwhile Son Tung Nguyen, who joined M&G six years ago, has also been promoted to senior analyst, in recognition of his additional strategic responsibilities.
The changes build upon the recent appointments of analysts Ana-Cristina Mutilica and Georgi Gunchev to the global equity team, both of whom joined earlier this year to strengthen research and engagement capabilities. With a background in stewardship, Ana-Cristina primarily focuses on corporate strategy, sustainability and climate risk management, while Georgi has a strong background across European banks, with a particular focus on Spanish and Italian lenders.
“The strong performance of the Global Listed Infrastructure and Global Themes strategies under Alex Araujo and his team’s tenure showcases the in-depth expertise and solid and repeatable investment process, which have earned increasingly greater recognition among our clients. Nicholas joining the team will continue to strengthen such expertise and further help our clients take advantage of the opportunities within global equities.”Fabiana Fedeli, Chief Investment Officer, Equities and Multi-Assets at M&G
