Boutique Arjent hires 15 after management team exit

Boutique Arjent hires 15 after management team exit

Arjent has hired 15 new staff members following the departure of its management team in 2012.

The boutique has taken on seven senior staff members, including Matthew Lovell, who worked for eight years at Charles Stanley as an equity and derivative broker.

James Floyd has joined the London team from the Welbeck Group where he worked as a wealth manager, while a team of three has been taken on from City Equities.

Senior equity dealers Kamran Hussain and Kyri Panayides and Christian Mather an equity adviser, have joined Arjent’s London-based investment management team.

At the Bristol office, James Cox has joined from a stockbroking role at HB Markets.

The hires follow the departure of chief executive David Couch and chief operating officer Chris Deacon, who walked out in May last year following irreconcilable differences with the board.

Arjent managing director James Hutson (picked) said the business was in ‘expansion mode’.

‘I am thrilled to be welcoming so many new and skilled investment managers to our growing team,’ he added.

Three trainee investment managers have been recruited for the London office, Rory Hunter, Lee Downes and Jonathan Whittley. Sam Luckett and William Morgan have joined the Bristol team as investment management trainees.
