In this week's Investment Influencers video interview, profiling the most respected individuals who select funds, decide ratings or otherwise influence the allocation of investor fund flows, we chat to Chris Wyllie of Connor Broadley.
Wyllie, who is chief investment officer, joined the firm in 2014. In all, he has more than three decades' financial experience, firstly with F&C as a fund manager. In 1997, he joined Schroders, being promoted to director within two years of joining the firm.
In 2005, Wyllie moved from corporate to private client investment manager at JP Morgan before becoming chief investment officer for the Guinness family at Iveagh, where he also managed a range of multi-asset mutual funds for high net worth private investors.
The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Jake Moeller of Thomson Reuters Lipper, Edward Park of Brooks Macdonald and Thomas Becket of Psigma, offers insights into how key players in the asset management sector see the world of investing and expect to deal with such challenges as greater market volatility, increased regulation and a growing trend towards short-termism.
