Ian McVeigh

Ian McVeigh was awarded sole management of the Jupiter UK Growth fund when he joined the group in April 2003. He started his career at Sheppards and Chase as an analyst and later moved into sales. In 1984 McVeigh began a 14 year period at Philips & Drew where he was a successful member of the UK equity division, both as a salesman and account manager. His first fund management role came at Schroders in 1998, where he took responsibility for a range of investment trusts, retail funds and pension fund mandates. When McVeigh left four years later, he used his vast investment experience to launch the Parkway Global fund, a global macro hedge fund he ran until 2003. A senior member of Jupiter’s specialist UK equity team, McVeigh is an Oxford graduate and spends his free time cycling and spending time with his family.


The objective is to obtain long-term capital growth by investing in any economic sector principally in the UK.
