Jupiter Asset Management has appointed Andrew Clark as Head of Private Clients and Charities.
Andrew, who has 17 years’ experience in the wealth management sector, will join Jupiter in early December 2012 from Schroders where he has worked as Head of Business Development for the private banking division since April 2010. Prior to this role, he worked for 15 years in the private client division at Merrill Lynch (formerly Blackrock and Mercury Asset Management), culminating in his appointment as Managing Director, Head of Discretionary, EMEA at Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management.
At Jupiter, Andrew will seek to build on the strong growth already achieved by Jupiter’s private client division. The 24-strong private client team has doubled assets under management to some £1.8bn during the past four years by delivering strong performance and high service standards, supported by Jupiter’s strong brand.
Maarten Slendebroek, Distribution & Strategy Director at Jupiter, said: “The wealth management sector is benefiting from long term structural growth and Jupiter has already made significant strides to increase its share of the market. We are delighted that Andrew will be joining us as we seek to take this growth to the next level.”
Andrew Clark said: “Jupiter clearly has the investment culture, the specialist resources and the necessary commitment to deliver excellence in portfolio management and client service to private clients and charities. I am very much looking forward to helping the team build on the momentum already established and achieve their future goals.”
