Co-chief Investment Officer
Co-chief Investment Officer of NS Partners, has been managing money in East Asia and the broader emerging markets for over 26 years. He began his career at Royal Insurance Asset Management as an Asian Fund Manager on the Far East team where he soon became responsible for a variety of Far East client portfolios. Ian joined what is now NS Partners in 1996. He assumed responsibility for all Asian equity investments shortly thereafter and took on Emerging Markets in late 1998. Passionate about emerging market equities, Ian is an enthusiastic advocate of the subjects that define the team’s investment process: true economic profitability of companies driving shareholder returns; liquidity impacts on asset prices; and behavioural finance in capital markets – and how these factors interact.
