ProMeritum brings on sub-Saharan Africa specialist James Marshall

Thursday, November 08, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - ProMeritum Investment Management LLP, an emerging markets fixed income manager focusing on Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA), has announced the appointment of James Marshall.

James is Director, Local Markets at ProMeritum and is primarily involved in the research and execution of the firm's investment strategy in local markets, particularly sub-Saharan Africa. Previously, James was a Senior Portfolio Manager at Enko Capital Management.

Prior to Enko, James worked at J.P. Morgan for 12 years, having joined that firm in 2005. At J.P. Morgan, James was an Executive Director within Global Emerging Markets with responsibility for the sub-Saharan Africa Local Markets trading business. During his time he lived in Johannesburg where he developed and continues to foster a strong network of contacts with local policy makers and financial market participants.

Pavel Mamai, Founding Partner of Promeritum, said, "We are delighted to welcome James to the firm. We have a very specific strategy in emerging markets fixed income, we believe in generating alpha by identifying idiosyncratic risk in complex situations, which requires exceptional research capabilities and extensive on-the-ground understanding of individual markets. Adding James to our team will increase our capability in sub-Saharan Africa and local markets, which are key areas of interest for us."

James Marshall added, "I am very excited to be joining Promeritum, the founding partners have invested extensively in the highest quality of infrastructure and people for the firm, and are very well-known in the emerging markets fixed income space for their extensive expertise and experience."

James holds a first-class honours degree in Banking and International Finance from Cass Business School and the City University of Hong Kong.
