Thurleigh hires ex-Swip UK equity fund manager

Thurleigh hires ex-Swip UK equity fund manager

Thurleigh Investment Managers has made a top-tier hire with the appointment of ex-Swip investment director Jeremy Charles.

Charles had worked as a director for UK equities at the Edinburgh-based business and managed the Scottish Widows UK Growth fund.

He managed £5 billion as part of team running £25 billion, but he left in the summer of 2012 during an overhaul of the Swip’s equity strategies.  

He previously worked at Aviva and Royal Dutch Shell Pension Funds and joins the nine-strong Thurleigh investment team as a portfolio manager.

Thurleigh chief investment officer Charles McKinnon (pictured) said the appointment of a new manager with an institutional background would bring an ‘interesting dimension’ to the firm’s investment offer.

Charles added: ‘Having worked in some of the investment industry’s largest companies I have been impressed with Thurleigh’s rigorous process and academic approach to asset allocation.  I am excited to be joining such a dynamic and highly regarded team.'
