Investec appoints Nelson and Whall for global energy fund

Investec has appointed Tom Nelson and Charles Whall to manage its global energy fund, Money Marketing understands.

Nelson joins from Guinness Asset Management while Whall is joining the firm from Newton.

Last month Investec announced the departures of Mark Lacey and Jonathan Waghorn, co-portfolio managers of the Investec global energy strategies. The pair are set to leave in July.

Nelson joined Guinness Asset Management in April 2005 and is co-manager of the Guinness global energy fund and executive co-manager of the Guinness global thematic equity fund. Charles Whall joined Newton in 2000 and is a global research analyst.

Nelson was an analyst on the fund from 2005 to 2008. Money Marketing understands that Nelson will join in September and Whall will join shortly after.
