led by Ian Warmerdam. The team is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Steve joins as a portfolio manager.
He was previously director of equity research and head of US equities at SLI.
Weeple will report to Ian Warmerdam, who says the addition “fills out our team”.
“Making such a senior hire speaks to the high regard in which Henderson and the global growth team are held.”
Warmerdam adds that he has “long-admired” Weeple, who he has known for many years.
Weeple says he has been impressed with Henderson’s global team and believes in their fundamental bottom up approach.
