Threadneedle bolsters Weldon's US team with JPM hire

Threadneedle Investments has hired Nadia Grant from JP Morgan Asset Management to join its US equity team.

In her new role, she will report to the firm's head of US equities, Cormac Weldon (pictured), and will be based in its London office from the start of February.

During her time at JP Morgan AM, Grant focused on US equities within its global multi-asset group, which ran over $5 billion. She spent two years at the firm's New York office where she also ran US equity portfolios.

The new appointment strengthens Threadneedle's US equity team to 12 members, including four fund managers and six analysts, which manage over €13 billion.

Among the US equity products the group currently has in its Luxembourg-domiciled fund range are: Threadneedle (Lux) American, Threadneedle (Lux) American Select and the Threadneedle (Lux) American Absolute Alpha.
