Rising Neptune star to take two year Brexit sabbatical

Rising Neptune star to take two year Brexit sabbatical

Neptune Investment Management’s rising UK star, Holly Cassell, is to take a two year sabbatical from the firm to work for the government in an advisory role on Brexit.

Cassell, who is Mark Martin’s deputy manager on the Neptune UK Mid Cap and UK Opportunities funds, has taken on a two year fixed contract with the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

She will return to her role at Neptune at the end of the term. Company chief executive Robin Geffen believes she will gain unique experience.

‘Brexit is the key determining economic event of our lifetime in the UK, he said.

'Speculation remains over what kind of relationship the UK will develop with our partners after we leave the European Union, but regardless of whether you’re a remainer or a supporter of hard or soft Brexit, national unity is of vital importance at this time.’

‘It is crucial that one puts aside narrow self-interest, and focuses instead on getting the best and brightest in the UK working on this issue.
