Liontrust has recruited Mark Hawtin as Head of Global Growth Equities and Jeremy Roberts as Head of Global Distribution (ex UK). These are key appointments in enabling Liontrust to expand its fund offering, international distribution and client base.

Mark joins with his team - David Goodman, Kevin Kruczynski and Pieran Maru - in May. Mark, who has 37 years of investment experience, is an Investment Director and leads the Global Growth Equity team at GAM Investments. The team currently manages the GAM Star Disruptive Growth and GAM Star Alpha Technology funds.

Prior to joining GAM in 2008, Mark was a partner and portfolio manager with Marshall Wace Asset Management for eight years, including managing one of Europe’s largest technology, media and telecoms hedge funds.

Jeremy, who will join Liontrust in April, will be responsible for growing global distribution outside the UK with an initial focus on Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Nordics, Iberia and Latin America, Benelux and France.

Jeremy has extensive experience and knowledge of global distribution having been Co-Head of EMEA Retail Sales and Head of UK Retail Business at BlackRock and then Global Head of Distribution at GAM. He has over 20 years of experience in the Investment Management industry and has worked extensively with clients across the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.


“Mark Hawtin and his team are an important addition to Liontrust given the importance of global equities across the client base. Mark has a strong track record in managing long only and long/short equity funds at Marshall Wace and then GAM and further enhances our global capabilities.

“Jeremy has successfully built global distribution and will be responsible for expanding our client relationships and partnerships in Continental Europe and South America.”
