Tilney has appointed former Rubicon Fund Management partner Christopher Godding as chief investment officer, replacing Gareth Lewis who will become managing director of investment strategy.
Prior to Rubicon, Godding (pictured) held a number of senior roles including CIO at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management, CIO and head of the global equity team at Signia Wealth, and as a fund manager at Moore Capital.
In his new role, Godding will be responsible for the firm's asset allocation process, the central investment teams and will join the executive committee.
As MD of investment strategy, Lewis will be responsible for business development and high value clients while remaining on the firm's asset allocation committee.
Godding said: "Tilney has firmly established itself as one of the UK's leading discretionary investment management and financial planning businesses, with award-winning investment track records built on a rigorous and disciplined investment process. After the successful integrations of 2016, this is very exciting time to be joining Tilney."
Tilney CEO Peter Hall added: "We are delighted Chris is joining Tilney as our chief investment officer and a member of the senior management team.
"Chris is an absolutely top-calibre CIO with extensive investment experience and he will be a great successor in the role to Gareth who has delivered exceptionally strong investment performance.
"Together, Gareth's new role in supporting the growth of our investment management business and the appointment of Chris as CIO further reinforces our position as a leading UK investment manager."
