Barings appoints chief investment officer

Baring Asset Management has appointed Ken Lambden as chief investment officer, effective 16 September. 

He will be based in London and report to Barings’ chairman and chief executive officer, David Brennan. 
Lambden joins Barings from Schroders where he was most recently global head of equities with oversight for over GBP90 billion of assets. 
Prior to this London based role, Lambden was CEO and CIO of Schroders’ Australian business and responsible for the division’s equity, fixed income and multi-asset teams.
After seven years in the position of CIO at Barings, Marino Valensise will move to a significant investment role as head of multi asset group, reporting to Lambden.  This follows Percival Stanion’s decision to resign to take up an external opportunity.  Andrew Cole and Shaniel Ramjee have also decided to resign from Barings.  Valensise’s leadership of the multi asset group and his chairmanship of the strategic policy group will take effect immediately.  He will take on the responsibility as lead fund manager of the Baring Dynamic Asset Allocation Fund.
Christopher Mahon will take leadership of the Baring Multi Asset Fund.
Brennan says: “We are pleased to welcome Ken to the firm as we continue to strengthen and develop our investment capabilities. It is a natural fit for Marino to assume leadership of our multi asset franchise ensuring continuity of investment approach and insight across the portfolios.”
Barings has also appointed Sonja Laud as multi asset income investment manager. She is based in London and reports to Valensise.  She joins the firm from Schroders where she was a fund manager with responsibility for five global equity funds that focused on income.
