River & Mercantile appoints Alex O’Reilly

River & Mercantile has announced the appointment of Alex O’Reilly as a partner at the firm.

O’Reilly joins from Newton and will pair up with former colleague Alex Stanic ahead of planned global equities launch.

R&M was set up by James Barham and Julian Cripps with backing from Sir John Beckwith and Mark Johnson at Pacific Investments in 2006.

Beckwith says: “This is further evidence of our commitment to building a robust and highly rated team of fund managers at R&M. It is excellent news that Alex will be joining River and Mercantile, he has a proven track record over many years and we look forward to the further development of the business with great excitement.”

O’Reilly says: “To be joining the R&M at this stage in its development is very exciting. R&M are developing a formidable business both in terms of the fund management teams they are attracting and the operational and business development infrastructure they have already established, and I am thrilled to be part of this.”
