Andrew Williamson-Jones

Lead Portfolio Manager

Andrew is the founder and principal portfolio manager of the Halo Global Asian Consumer Fund. He believes the Fund is a unique way to invest in the major economic event of our time, the rise of consumption in Asia.

From 2003-2012, he worked at Blackrock for 9 years starting in the UK team, but moving to the Global Equity team in 2006 to turn around the team’s performance. He helped double the assets under management by 2012. Whilst working in the global equity team, he spent time looking at the development of China and started to pivot his global equity portfolios to gain exposure to the Asian consumption trends.

He has also worked at Singer and Friedlander from 1996-2003 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1996.

He is passionate about the Fund and its objectives and spends most of his time understanding the consumption dynamics of the Asian middle class, researching and travelling to meet companies in Asia who are taking advantage of this economic development.
