Talib Sheikh to join Jupiter as multi asset head

JP Morgan Asset Management's Talib Sheikh has been recruited by Jupiter Asset Management as its head of multi-asset strategy. 

He will join in June and will report directly to chief investment officer Stephen Pearson.  

Pearson said: 'We are delighted to have attracted someone of Talib’s calibre and look forward to his arrival at Jupiter.

'Talib’s skillset is perfectly aligned with our strategic initiative to expand our international footprint in the multi-asset area, and he is well placed to spearhead this.'

His role will include building up Jupiter's multi-asset business, working closely with a team of fund managers, including Lee Manzi and Rhys Petheram

Katharine Dryer, head of investments, fixed income and multi-asset, added: 'Talib offers a powerful combination of active asset allocation and portfolio construction skills.

'Working closely with our existing team of specialists, his proven track record and broad product experience should enable us to equip our clients to meet their diverse investment goals in changing markets.'

Sheikh had been with JP Morgan for almost two decades. 

He was named on seven JPM funds in the Citywire database, covering mixed assets and multi-asset approaches, which had combined assets in excess of €30 billion (£26.6 billion).

He stepped down from the blockbuster €23.8 billion JPM Global Income fund on 13 February. 

Following Sheikh's departure from JP Morgan, convertibles fund manager Antony Vallee also exited the firm.
