Double hire for Jupiter's fixed interest team

Double hire for Jupiter's fixed interest team

Jupiter has hired Luca Evangelisti and Harry Richards to its fixed interest and multi-asset team.

The pair join as credit analysts and will report to Hilary Blandy, senior credit analyst on the team.

Evangelisti joins Jupiter from Moody’s, where he was an associate in the financial institutions group for two years.

Prior to that, he worked as a financial analyst in the investment management division of Goldman Sachs.

Richards, meanwhile, will transfer internally from Jupiter’s private client and charities arm, where he has been working for two years.

Richards brings to Jupiter's credit operation experience of quantitative and qualitative fund analysis as well as client portfolio monitoring.

Jupiter's said the two hires reflect the firm's growth in its fixed interest and multi-asset team, which as of November had amassed some £2.8 billion in assets.

Jupiter said it also hopes to build out the team further, and the two appointments bring it to 11 members who have responsibility for six portfolios including the Jupiter Strategic Reserve, Jupiter Corporate Bond, Jupiter Global Convertibles Sicav and the Jupiter Strategic Bond funds.

Miles Geldard, head of the fixed interest and multi asset team at Jupiter, said: 'The fixed interest and multi asset team has enjoyed strong growth in assets under management in recent years and I am delighted to welcome Luca Evangelisti and Harry Richards to the team.'

He added: 'Their appointments will help us enhance our offering to clients, putting us in a strong position for the next stage of our development.'
