Black will be responsible for managing global equity mandates with a particular focus on Japan. He will report to head of equities Stephen Adams.

He joins Kames from investment bank Macquarie where he has worked as a managing director in the company’s Hong Kong division since 2010, responsible for global sales of Pan Asian equities.

He brings with him 21 years’ financial services experience with his other prior roles including being head of Asian and Japanese sales into North America at Deutsche Bank, based in New York. He has also worked Citigroup and Merrill Lynch as a director in Japanese equity sales, and at Martin Currie where he was an investment manager.

Adams said: “The appointment of Robin adds strength and depth to our equities team, as we look to further develop our capabilities both in the UK and in continental Europe. Robin’s extensive experience in Japanese equities in particular will allow us to strengthen our credentials in the region.”
