Investec Wealth appoints new head of investment strategy
by Robert St George on Sep 16, 2013 at 12:21
John Wyn-Evans has joined Investec Wealth & Investment as head of investment strategy.
Most recently, Wyn-Evans developed thematic research on economics, strategy and asset allocation for Troy Asset Management. He was previously a director responsible for equity sales at Lehman Brothers and then Nomura.
Wyn-Evans will step into the group’s 19-strong research team, and will ease the burden on John Haynes. As well as being the firm’s head of research, Haynes has been providing advice on investment strategy to Investec’s clients since the departure of Jim Wood-Smith earlier this year.
Haynes will now focus exclusively on the team’s processes and the services it provides to investment managers and across Investec’s wider client base.
‘This is an important role as it brings our third-party clients into the heart of the investment process,’ said Haynes. ‘John is a hugely experienced investment professional who brings an additional layer of insight from his career on the sell-side and we are delighted he has agreed to join us.’
