Paris-based boutique Gemway Asset has hired Citywire AAA-rated manager Nina de Martinis-Majstorovic and made her co-lead manager on its flagship fund.
Martinis-Majstorovic formally joined the French group in December following nine years at Amundi.
In her new capacity, Martinis-Majstorovic will serve as a co-lead manager on the GemEquity fund, a France-domiciled Ucits fund focused on global emerging markets.
During her tenure with Amundi, Martinis-Majstorovic primarily oversaw Middle East and North Africa equity funds, such as the Amundi Funds Equity MENA fund, which have now been taken on by Rémy Marcel.
The GemEquity fund, which is domiciled in France, was launched in July 2012 and presently has €87.8 million in assets.
It has returned 10.3% in US dollars since launch to the end of December 2014. This is while its Citywire benchmark, the MSCI EM (Emerging Markets) TR USD, rose 7.16% over the same 29-month period.
