Brooks hires ex Credo strategy head Gemma Godfrey

Brooks hires ex Credo strategy head Gemma Godfrey

Brooks Macdonald has bolstered its team with the hire of Gemma Godfrey, Credo Capital’s former investment committee chair, as head of investment strategy.

Godfrey, a former Wealth Manager cover star, will take a leading role in formulating and communicating Brooks’ economic research for clients and advisers and take responsibility for expanding Brooks’ profile in the media, which the firm said represents a key strategy for business growth.

Commenting on the hire, Nick Holmes, joint managing director of Brooks Macdonald, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Gemma to our team and see this as an important strategic hire for the London business.’

Godfrey’s hire follows that of ex-New Star manager Toby Thompson in November.

She left Credo in December and has subsequently been replaced by RMB Asset Management chief executive Deon Gouws as chief investment officer.

Prior to joining Credo, Godfrey was a fund manager at Julius Baer and covered Latin American markets at GAM. She has also enjoyed stints at Goldman Sachs and UBS, and trained as a quantum physicist.
