BMO Global Asset Management has confirmed its appointment of Phil Webster as portfolio manager across a number of its European equities funds.

Webster will work across the European Equity fund, European Growth & Income fund, Mid-Cap fund and European Small Cap fund.

His appointment is effective immediately.

Webster joins from Aberdeen Asset Management, where he worked for more than a decade, most recently as senior investment manager on the pan-European equities team.
