Quilter has looked to rival asset manager 7IM for its latest hire, appointing Ian Jensen-Humpreys as a portfolio manager.
Mr Jensen-Humphreys joins from 7IM, where he was most recently deputy chief investment officer. He has more than 20 years of investment experience, specialising in derivatives and alternative investments within multi-asset portfolios.
He joins the 15-strong investment team at Quilter Investors and will work with the current portfolio management team and chief executive Paul Simpson on the existing product range and investment processes.
Mr Jensen-Humphreys said: “I am really excited to join the Quilter Investors team and the wider group at what is an important juncture in the investment world.
“The business is rightly recognised for its expertise in multi-asset investment solutions and given recent market developments these products are likely to come to the fore thanks to their diversified nature.”
He added this was a “great opportunity” to collaborate and contribute to a “highly ambitious” company.
Mr Simpson said he was delighted to welcome Mr Jensen-Humphreys to the team, adding the hire would help emphasise the work Quilter Investors had achieved as a business.
He said: “We have invested considerable time and effort into building a robust and expert portfolio management team with a product range designed to help solve the needs of advisers and their clients.”
Mr Jensen-Humphreys is a chartered financial analyst and started his career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs. He also worked at Citigroup, identifying investment solutions for UK pension funds.
He is the latest in a string of manager moves over the past month, with James Sym moving from Schroders to River & Mercantile and Nick Clay quitting BNY Mellon for boutique manager RWC Partners.
