Morningstar IM appoints Kemp as CIO for EMEA

Dan Kemp, the Morningstar Investment Management EMEA’s co-head of investment consulting and portfolio management, has been appointed the new chief investment officer at the firm.

Kemp, who joined Morningstar a year ago, will replace and report to Daniel Needham, who became president and chief investment officer for Morningstar Investment Management in January 2015.

Before Morningstar, Kemp worked at investment consultancy partnership Albemarle Street Partners, which he also co-founded. 

The company has also appointed Robin Johnson to replace Kemp as co-head of investment consulting and portfolio management for EMEA. Johnson joined Morningstar in 2007 and leads Morningstar’s portfolio management team across EMEA, reporting to Kemp. 

Previously he worked at Mellon Global Investors and Bestinvest. 

Needham says: “Dan and Robin are outstanding portfolio managers and advocates for end investors, committed to delivering great investment results for clients. Together they have had tremendous positive impact on the growth of our service offerings for our clients and I’m excited about these appointments.

“Under Dan’s leadership, the EMEA investment team is well positioned to continue to deliver strong investment outcomes and provide valuable support to our business operations within EMEA.”
