Ashburton appoints lead manager on equity funds

Asset manager Ashburton has named Veronika Pechlaner as lead manager on its international equity funds.

Pechlaner, who has been with Ashburton since 2008, replaces Jonathan Schiessl, head of Ashbuton’s equities team, who will now concentrate solely on the firm’s Asian funds.

Peter Bourne, managing director of Ashburton, says: “Veronika has made a valuable contribution to the European team and we are pleased that she has now accepted this opportunity to grow our global equity offering.”

“Ashburton has always had a strong regional fund tradition, as building blocks within our multi-asset funds and as standalone funds; Veronika will play an important role in building global equity as a key area of opportunity for the business.”
