The former head of US equity at Standard Life Investments has joined Henderson Global Investors, the asset manager has announced.
Steve Weeple, who was also formerly director of equity research, will sit in the global growth equities team led by Citywire A-rated Ian Warmerdam, the asset manager company has announced.
It is understood that Weeple left prior to the merger between Standard Life and Aberdeen announced at the start of March.
