IFA Churchill Investments has announced the appointment of Warren Perry as head of research replacing investment director Malcolm Weightman who is retiring after 30 years in the industry.
Perry was previously senior investment director from 1994 to 2002 at Whitechurch Securities and then managing director at Lindsay Welbeck.
Churchill Investments managing director, Jamie Ware, has welcomed his arrival citing his experience in the IFA sector as the company prepares for depolarisation.
The firm, established in 1996, advises clients on some £75m of stockmarket investments in collective investment funds.
Perry says: “In the fast-changing world of collective funds, selection and monitoring of funds is ever more important. Many advisers lack the ability to analyse funds, so specialist investment advisers like Churchill can add substantial value for clients.”
