Philip Ehrmann

Londoner Philip Ehrmann studied at St. Paul’s School, Bristol University and London School of Economics before graduating in 1981 with a BSc in Economics, Industry and Trade. He began his career with a sales role at Rowe and Pitman later that year where he focused on North American equities. In 1984 Invesco named Ehrmann manager and subsequently Director of US international assets, promoting him to global partner and director of emerging markets in 1990. Ehrmann made the switch to Gartmore in 1995 to become head of emerging markets. He was appointed head of Pacific and emerging markets in 2000 and currently manages over £300 million for the company. Ehrmann joined Jupiter in 2006 where he managed the Jupiter China fund. He left Jupiter in 2014.

Kathryn Langridge

Kathryn Langridge raised a few eyebrows when she became the first woman from a British university to be taken on by Hong Kong group Jardine Matheson in 1980. Langridge repaid the vote of confidence by achieving good performance for the institutional pension schemes under her control. In 1990 she moved to Invesco Perpetual, where she was head of international equity products. In 2007 She joined Lloyd George, and subsequently Jupiter in 2010. She left Jupiter at the end of 2014. Born in 1958, Langridge graduated from Cambridge with a degree in English Literature. She cites former colleague Neil Woodford and value guru Sir John Templeton as the fund managers she most respects.
