Investment manager James Beck, founding partner of Quilter Cheviot, is to join James Hambro & Partners (JH&P) as a partner.
Beck joins after 10 years with Cheviot, where he was responsible for managing portfolios on behalf of individuals, trusts, charities and pension funds. He also chaired the Quilter Cheviot Alternative Investments Committee and sat on the Fund Selection Committee.
Prior to that, Beck worked at James Capel Investment Management and Laing & Cruickshank Investment Management, which was acquired by UBS Wealth Management.
Beck’s appointment comes a week after JH&P promoted portfolio manager Rosie Bullard, chief operating officer Martina Iannotti, and Christopher Macklin, head of business development, as partners.
Last year it announced it had secured US and global markets equities specialist William Francklin from Waverton Investment Management. Francklin is expected to start at JH&P this summer.
JH&P, which was launched in 2010, now manages and advises over £2bn of assets.
“Over the last six years we have achieved some significant milestones and with these latest appointments we are demonstrating our commitment to further strong, sustainable growth,” the firm’s chairman Jamie Hambro said.
