Six senior members of Hill Samuel's asset management team are joining Capel Cure Sharp (CCS) as part of the group's move to establish an institutional asset management division.
John Ainsworth, previously chief investment officer at Hill Samuel, will become chief executive officer of CCS's new asset management division, which is to be known as Gerrard Asset Management. He will also become investment director for the combined CCS and Greig Middleton business.
Other former Hill Samuel members include Adrian Farthing, previously head of continental European equities and of large cap pan-European equity research at Hill Samuel, Ashton Bradbury, head of UK retail funds, Fiona Hawthorn, head of Far East and global emerging markets, Peter Baxter, head of global strategy, and Ian Pascal, retail marketing director at Hill Samuel.
In the retail market, the group plans to build on the performance of the CCS unit trust division. Ainsworth said: "The challenge is to develop an asset management business that can serve the needs of institutional, retail and private clients, while retaining the fleetness of a boutique manager."
