AXA Framlington has appointed Jeremy Gleeson to run its global technology offering.
Gleeson, previously senior portfolio manager of technology at Close Investments, will replace Nick Evans, set to leave the firm in July, and report to CEO Robert Kyprianou.
While at Close, Gleeson was the manager of several technology funds comprising over £80m in assets.
He is a CFA charter holder and has a first-class honours degree in Mathematics and a Masters in Systems Engineering, both from Cardiff University.
Kyprianou says: “Specialist funds are of strategic importance to AXA Framlington and the appointment of Jeremy Gleeson as manager of our Global Technology fund is proof of our commitment to having compelling products in the specialist sector.
“Jeremy is an award-winning fund manager with a strong track record, and he is an excellent addition to our fund management team.
“He has a passion for the technology sector and his bottom-up active judgemental approach is a strong fit with AXA Framlington’s dynamic, stock-picking, culture.”
