Jupiter unveils Bestinvest private client hires

Jupiter unveils Bestinvest private client hires

Jupiter has unveiled the names of the four private client managers who join from Bestinvest next month to bolster its £800 million private client division.

Oliver Burns, William Day, David Blake and William Luttrell-Hunt will join the firm next month bringing Jupiter's private client fund manager headcount to 14.

The news comes just a week after Jupiter announced that Robert Walker, Paula Forecast, Phil Gent and Oliver Pearson-Lund would be joining Jupiter from Singer & Friedlander between November 2008 and January 2009.

The hires are the first external recruits by Jupiter's private client business,  a key focus of expansion for the company going forward.

The additions are likely to push Jupiter's private client assets under management significantly over the £1 billion mark.

Assets for the division currently stand at £800 million, up from around £250 million two years ago.

Jupiter head of private client Colin Chisholm (pictured) said the Bestinvest managers had experience of working in SRI and green private client investing, a key part of Jupiter's retail and private client fund offering.

He said: 'We have already built a high quality platform and now we are building on it.These new managers should help to take our platform over the £1 billion mark.' 

The eight new hires will join Jupiter's existing private client managers, comprising Chisholm, Victor Cazelet, Sam Boyd and Jamie Ferguson on the Jupiter fund-based team, and Tim Woods and Kevin Booth on the stock broking side.
