Lomnitzer joins First State from Merchant Capital where he founded and managed the Merchant Global Fund. Prior to that he ran resources and energy funds for NewSmith Capital and ORN Capital.

“Tal has 13 years’ experience in buy-side global resources research and investment. He brings extensive knowledge in both long and short investing strategies within global resources equities. His location in London, working alongside analyst Pete Campbell will improve the team’s real-time coverage of the UK, European and North American markets which are critical to our global investment philosophy.”
