Morningstar Investment Management Europe Ltd, a provider of investment advisory and portfolio services, has appointed Simon Ewan to the role of Managing Director.

Simon will lead operations, client management, marketing, and business development for Morningstar’s investment management and consulting operations in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), including Morningstar OBSR and Morningstar Investment Consulting France. He reports to Daniel Needham, Global Chief Investment Officer for Morningstar Investment Management, a unit of Morningstar, Inc.

Simon brings more than 25 years of experience in investment management and asset management to Morningstar. Most recently, he worked for MSCI in London, where he was Executive Director, Head of EMEAI Asset Owners and Consultants.

“Simon has extensive experience in building investment research and consulting businesses,” Needham said. ”He will work closely with our leadership team to expand our unified investment management business, delivering the full breadth of our investment capabilities and investment consulting services to intermediaries, institutional investors, and group personal pension plan providers across the UK and Europe.”

Morningstar’s investment management professionals create tailored investment, pension, and portfolio management solutions including select lists and model portfolios using the company’s expertise in asset allocation, research and selection, portfolio construction, and portfolio monitoring.
