Charles joins the firm as a portfolio manager.
He was previously at SWIP where he worked on Peter Cockburn's UK equities team until his exit from in August last year during an overhaul of SWIP's active equity strategies.
He has previously held roles at Aviva Investors, Canada Life, and Royal Dutch Shell Pension Funds in London and Bermuda.
Thurleigh’s chief investment officer Charles MacKinnon said: “We are delighted to welcome Jeremy to the team. His broad investment background and in particular his institutional experience will bring an interesting new dimension to Thurleigh’s investment offering.”
