Al l an Gray, one of South Africa’s most out­stand­ing as­set man­agers, is set to re­main f irmly on course f ol l ow i ng t he de a t h of f or mer chair­man, Si­mon Marais, in Fe­bru­ary.

This emerged in a frank dis­cus­sion with new chair­man Ian Liddle, who has been chief i nvest­ment off icer (CIO) since 2008, and new deputy Deputy CIO of Allan Gray CIO An­drew Lap­ping, who has been a port­fo­lio man­ager since 2006.

Rob Dower will con­tinue as chief op­er­at­ing off icer (COO). He was ap­pointed in June 2009.

Marais added con­sid­er­able value to the group in his 24-year in­vest­ment ca­reer. Apart from be­ing non-ex­ec­u­tive c ha i r man of t he South Africa n com­pany, he spent t wo years as head of re­search in Lon­don with its sis­ter com­pany Or­bis, and founded Allan Gray Aus­tralia.
