Architas loses multi-asset manager to Schroders

Architas has appointed senior investment manager Nathan Sweeney as co-manager at the firm, after the departure of Stephanie Carbonneil to join Schroders.

Sweeney will manage the the £770m Architas Multi-Asset Active range and run the six risk-profiled funds alongside existing co-manager and Architas chief investment officer Caspar Rock.

Sweeney replaces senior investment manager Stephanie Carbonneil, who will join Schroders’ intermediary business development team later this year.

Rock says the multi-asset active range will not change after Sweeney’s appointment.

“Nathan has extensive experience in Architas and our multi-asset investment process having joined the team five years ago. For the past two years he has managed our UK equity, strategic bonds and monthly high income funds and been closely involved in the running of our multi-asset active fund range since the start of this year,” he adds.

Before joining Architas in 2010, Sweeney was a private client fund manager at private client firm Thornhill.
