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 James Costello.
Costello, who is a CFA Charterholder, a member of the CFA Institute, a Chartered Accountant (ACA) and a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, manages Davy Asset Management's multi-manager fund ranges, the GPS portfolios and Foundation funds.
Before joining the firm, he worked in the Capital Markets division of PricewaterhouseCoopers where his focus was on banking and investment companies. Costello is a graduate of University College Dublin where he received a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Ruli Viljoen of Morningstar, James Bateman of Fidelity and James McGuire of UBS, 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.
