Underhill left Artemis Investment Management in December 2020 after more than 18 years with the firm, having begun his tenure in September 2002 as a European sales manager. He also served as associate director of sales, London discretionary before taking on his final role as head of discretionary sales.

He joined the financial services industry in 1997 as a broker desk executive at Barclays, before moving to Threadneedle Investments one year later in the same role. He moved once more to ABN AMRO Bank to become head of broker desk, after which he joined Artemis in the same year the firm merged with ABN AMRO's buy side offering.

Ed Troughton, head of client relations and business development ex-US at Oldfield Partners, said: "We are thrilled to have attracted someone of Tom's calibre. His experience and relationships within the intermediary space will be highly valuable as we look to further enhance our support to intermediaries and consultants in the UK and help clients achieve their investment goals.

"He has a proven track record of building client relationships, and it is great for OP to have him on board at this exciting time for the firm and for markets."
