Tatton Investment Management has made two appointments to its investment team and announced a restructuring as it continues to grow assets.
Brooks Macdonald's Jon Messer has joined Tatton IM as a portfolio manager and Adam Rawling has been appointed as a quantitative research analyst.
Tatton confirmed it was hiring a fund manager research analyst and an investment strategist, to be announced in due course.
As part of the restructure, James Saunders, a quantitative research analyst at Tatton, has been promoted to deputy head of investment and will lead the fund research process in addition to his quantitative research responsibilities.
Head of investment Jim Kean has become Tatton's first chief economist.
Tatton said the restructure and appointments will "improve the framework between the firm's tactical asset allocation and long-term macroeconomic analysis".
It added that the changes come on the back of a previous announcement that its bespoke portfolio service and assets in its Blended Fund Range had increased to £95m, as at 14 August 2019.
Lothar Mentel, chief executive and chief investment officer, added: "The expansion into bespoke portfolios and the increase in assets within our blended funds has created the need for greater reach and it's a reflection of the strength of our team that we can resource our team both through internal promotions and external recruitment."
