Former M&G head of equities David Jane has made three appointments to Darwin Investment Managers to boost its distribution and investment management capabilities.
Former Valu-Trac Investment Management investment director, business development, Gary Hopkins will work on both investment and distribution. Hopkins has experience across fixed income, convertible bonds and derivative markets at Banque Paribas and AIG. He will work on both the investment and distribution.
Former FourWinds Capital Management managing director Hendrik Verest has experience in fixed income capital markets. He will work on broadening the firm’s distribution capabilities.
Thomas Hodge will join as head of risk management and dealing. He has worked in risk management and dealing roles within Credit Suisse.
Jane says: “These three individuals are bringing over 60 years of additional experience in investment markets into the business and some important skills in risk management and fixed income markets.”
Hargreaves Lansdown investment analyst Richard Troue says: “Bolstering the team in terms of bringing in people with experience in areas beyond equities, which is Jane’s expertise, should be seen as a positive step for investors.”
