Quilter Cheviot has kicked off its post-merger expansion plans with the hire of Quartet Capital Partners’ Nigel Olliff and Peter Butcher.
Olliff and Butcher join Quilter’s London office as investment managers, working for executive director Nick Britnell’s team. Quilter managing director Stephen Vakil said the hires were part of plans to capitalise on the greater scale of the combined groups and continue growing.
‘Following the now formal merger our immediate priority is to ensure that we dovetail the businesses behind the scenes, minimising any potential disruption to our clients,’ he said.
‘At the same time, our enlarged scale provides us all with considerable opportunities - we have an on-going commitment to continue to deliver to our growing investment teams the facilities they need to serve their clients.’
The two join from Surrey-based boutique Quartet Capital, where they were both partners and investment managers, and had a stint at Berry Asset Management prior to that.
Olliff was previously an investment manager and head of structured products at Berry, where he worked for five years. He also has a two-year spell as a manager at Adam & Remers Investment Management prior to that.
Butcher also worked at Berry as an investment manager and worked in a similar role at national private client manager Killik & Co before joining Quartet.
