About James Thomson
James Thomson holds a BA in French Area Studies from the University of Cornell; an unlikely qualification for a prospective fund manager. However, shortly after graduating in October 2000 he joined Rathbones where in May 2001, he was appointed as assistant on the then new Global Opportunities mandate. A little more than two years later Thomson was co-managing the portfolio with Julian Chillingworth and in July 2005 became the sole manager. Along with holding benchmark qualifications like the Investment Management Certificate (IMC), he also has a Securities Institute Diploma to his name. Further to this he is a Fellow of the Securities Institute and in November 2006 became a member of the Rathbone Unit Trust Management Ltd board. His current position is a far cry from his beginnings at one of the empire's last remaining colonies, Bermuda. Whilst he has followed many of his compatriots through being educated in the States and working in England, he hasn’t completely abandoned his island origins and still rides a moped to work.
