Jupiter adds two faces to Chatfeild-Roberts' multi-manager team

Jupiter Asset Management has bolstered John Chatfeild-Roberts' fund of funds team with a double hire.

Amanda Sillars joins on 18 May as a fund selection specialist from JP Morgan Asset Management, where she was served as an investment director. In this role she provide research input on 500 equity and multi-asset segregated accounts, institutional funds and investment trusts.

Prior to this Sillars had a 10-year stint as a fund analyst at JP Morgan Private Bank and Flemings.

At the same time Jupiter has lifted David Lewis from its private clients & charities division which he joined from Bestinvest in November 2008. He will also join the multi-manager team on 18 May as an assistant manager.

The duo will join forces with Chatfeild-Roberts (pictured), who as Jupiter chief investment officer runs the team, and Peter Lawery and Algy Smith-Maxwell.

The team runs £6 billion across a range of funds and including the Citywire Selection Merlin Growth fund which has returned 31% over the last three years 27.4% gain in the FTSE World Index. Its maximum drawdown was 21.7% with a standard deviation of 4.3. 

Chatfeild-Roberts said: 'Jupiter has built a strong reputation for successfully developing its fund management team over the past decade and with the Independent Funds Team now managing over £6 billion in assets, we felt the time was right to expand the team. I am delighted Amanda and David are joining us and look forward to working with them.'
