Heartwood Investment Management has hired ex-Old Mutual Global Investors director (OMGI) Matt Hollier to the newly created role of head of investment product.
In his new capacity, Hollier will be responsible for overseeing product development and management, marketing and investment support. He will also assume business management responsibility for both Heartwood’s UK and Dublin fund ranges.
He worked at OMGI for 13 years, most recently as director of product management.
Noland Carter (pictured), head of Heartwood and CIO said, '[Matt Hollier] will play a crucial role in ensuring that our investment proposition remains client-centric.
'His proven track record in business strategy, marketing and product development will be invaluable to our team and we are looking forward to working with him.'
Heartwood, which has just over £2 billion of funds under management and administration, became a subsidiary of Sweden's Handelsbanken last year.
Four strategies lie at Heartwood's core – defensive, cautious, balanced and growth – which can be accessed through the firm’s model portfolio service or fund range, which was launched four years ago.
