Heartwood Investment Management has grown its investment team with the hire of two budding young stars.
Alistair Campbell has joined the firm from Sarasin & Partners, where he was an analyst and portfolio manager for third party funds, focusing on liquid hedge fund strategies.
His primary area of research is alternatives and he will be assisting Charu Lahiri in managing the Heartwood Alternatives fund.
He began his career as a fund analyst at Societe Generale Private Banking in 2013.
Nikki Howes has joined the firm from JP Morgan, where she held a number of roles and was most recently an investment banking analyst. She started her career at UBS in 2013.
She will work with Michael Stanes on the management of Heartwood’s Growth Investment strategy, while her primary area of research is equities.
Both have joined the firm as investment associates.
Heartwood head and chief investment officer Nolan Carter said the new hires ‘will undoubtedly play a vital role in Heartwood’s growth as we continue to evolve our approach to multi asset investing’.
The appointments are Heartwood’s first significant hires since the firm recruited Graham Bishop as an investment director from Citi Bank, where he was a global macro strategist, in May last year.
But the firm did also lose its client director Jim Clay, who joined Tilney as a business development director for the north of England in July.
