New roles for ex-Whitechurch pair Cockerill and Perry

Former Whitechurch Securities employees Tim Cockerill and Warren Perry have respectively joined Principal Investment Management and IFA/fund manager group Lindsay Welbeck.

Cockerill becomes a senior discretionary fund manager at PIM responsible for clients in the West, some PR and research. He spent several years with Whitechurch before moving to Chartwell Investment Management in 2000, leaving last year after 20 months. He has since been working with financial services conference organiser Sway Consulting on a short-term basis.

Perry, who was made redundant from White-church last October, has joined West Midlands firm Lindsay Welbeck as joint managing director. He takes responsibility for compliance, PI insurance and PR in addition to overseeing the company&#39s investment function, which manages around £50m for high-net-worth individuals.

Perry is working towards implementing a new investment process but will not run money on a day to day basis. He says the company may launch a discretionary offering to complement the existing service.

He says: “I will keep my hand in running money but most of that will be done by fund manager Stephen Hall.”

Cockerill says: “Principal is a significant player in the discretionary market with around £350m under management. It was just too good an opportunity to miss.”
