Lofoten Asset Management announces a new addition to the EI Sturdza Strategic Europe Value Fund team following widespread interest in the investment strategy. The Fund has grown 86% since the start of 2015 alone to the end of April.
Steven Bowen joins as senior analyst and back-up portfolio manager, adding 20 years of experience in the finance industry, including eight years at Franklin Templeton, where his last role was as portfolio manager and two years at HSBC Asset Management.
