Swip small cap boss joins SLI to head Europe fund

Swip small cap boss joins SLI to head Europe fund

Former Swip UK smaller companies director Andrew Paisley has joined Standard Life’s small cap team as manager of the company’s £205 million European Smaller Companies fund.  

He replaces predecessor Kenneth Nicholson who left the company earlier this year. 

Paisley joins as one of five investment directors reporting to the company’s head of smaller companies Harry Nimmo (pictured). He joined Swip in 2011 having previously worked at Kempen Capital Management and Edinburgh Fund Managers.

Paisley said: ‘I have admired the work of Harry and the team over many years and look forward to working with them to help develop the franchise further and continue to deliver out-performance for clients.’

Nimmo added: ‘Andrew’s track record to date is impressive in terms of managing European and UK smaller companies equities.  

‘With sixteen years of investment experience behind him, of which fourteen involve smaller companies equities, his input within our process, fund management and stock selection is likely to be prodigious.’

Over the last three years the European Smaller Companies fund has returned 39.2% versus a sector average of 31.87%.
