Saunderson House are very proud to announce the appointment of Emma Bennie as the new Chair of the Saunderson House Investment Committee.

Emma joined the Saunderson House Graduate Programme in 2007 as a Trainee Financial Planner before joining our Investment Research team in 2009.  Here, she was responsible for the team’s research effort in emerging markets and Asia, as well as managing portfolios on behalf of our discretionary clients following the launch of the service in 2016.  In 2018, she became Head of our Discretionary Management Service and is now responsible for delivering the proposition to clients.

Outside of the office, Emma is a mother of two girls and avid sports fan.  She is particularly delighted with the progress of her team, West Ham United, over recent seasons.

As an existing member of the Investment Committee, Emma will now lead our robust challenge on investment process, investment thesis, asset allocation and fund selection as part of our ongoing governance process.

The Directors and staff of SHL wish Emma the very best in her new role.
