John Duffield's investment firm Brompton Asset Management has hired Antony John as head of multi-asset.

John added: 'I have known Brompton’s senior people for many years and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with them in building a first-class multi-asset business.

'With markets increasingly complex and volatile and regulation intensifying, investors recognise the importance of diversification and that multi-asset.'
