Waverton hires Newton man in charity push

Waverton hires Newton man in charity push

Waverton Investment Management has hired Ian Enslin, formerly of Newton, to its charities team.

Enslin will report to James Pike, head of charities. Pike said: 'There is a growing need for a highly personalised investment service in the charities sector.

'We recognise this as a firm and are therefore focused on continuing to give our clients the opportunity to work directly with their portfolio managers. Our charities clients will benefit significantly from Ian’s strategic thinking in the investment arena.'

In his new role, Enslin (pictured) will be responsible for managing segregated, multi-asset mandates for charity clients.

Enslin joins from Newton Investment Management, where he managed similar strategies for charities and institutional investors.

He previously worked for Barings and Invesco in a variety of roles, including fixed income and private client portfolio management. 

Enslin said: 'I am very pleased to join Waverton because it is one of the few houses left in the industry that truly invests globally through direct securities to construct transparent segregated portfolios, backed by internally generated research.

'[It] also puts a strong emphasis on the service element of a client relationship, a feature which is often overlooked by the sector.'

In January, JO Hambro Investment Management rebranded as Waverton Investment Management. The change followed the sale of the business by Credit Suisse to Bermuda-based Somers Limited, which was then called Bermuda National Limited, and Johim management in 2013.
