Kames Capital, which currently manages some £8.8bn on behalf of institutional investors, has appointed Peter Ball as director of its institutional business and head of business development at its parent Aegon Asset Management.

Ball will report to Kames CEO Martin Davis. He first started working with Kames in March 2014 on a consultancy basis.

The institutional business will maintain its focus on areas such as absolute return, equity, ethical, fixed income, multi-asset and property, but is looking to build business opportunities for the Aegon Asset Management group globally, including the Asia, Europe and North America regions.

Ball previously worked at JLT Employee Benefits, and before that at JP Morgan Asset Management, leading its UK institutional business.

Kames added 23 mandates in the UK in 2014 for clients such as West Midland Pension Fund, Kent County Council and the Kensington & Chelsea Borough Council.
