Lester leaves Neptune to launch boutique
John Lester, head of strategic partnerships at Neptune Investment Management, has left to launch an investment boutique, alongside two members of his team.
Neptune said the departure is with immediate effect. Lester had been at Neptune for six years.
Richard Green, deputy managing director, Neptune Investment Management, said: “With Neptune’s 10th anniversary imminent and nearly £7bn under management, we are moving to the next stage of our business development, building on but also consolidating our earlier rapid growth.
“Since entrepreneurial spirit remains integral to our culture at Neptune, I accept that there will be occasions when those involved in Neptune’s earlier successes, should aspire to try and achieve it again elsewhere, at a more senior level. We wish them well.”
