Independent asset management boutique, Amati Global Investors, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tom Whitfield as Sales Director, with responsibility for clients in London and the broader South-East region. Whitfield spent five years in investment management with the London office of Brewin Dolphin, as part of a team managing discretionary and advisory client portfolios. He joins Amati from Sanlam Investments UK, where he was an Account Director with responsibility for wholesale and institutional clients across the London region.
Whitfield is an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment and holds the CISI Investment Advice Diploma in Investments and Securities, and its qualification in Private Client Advice. He will work alongside London Sales Director, Jon Woolley in his new role, and joins a team led by Head of Intermediary Sales, Colin Thomson, and Head of Sales and Marketing, Rachel Le Derf.
Best known for its flagship UK Listed Smaller Companies Fund and its AIM VCT, Tom joins the Edinburgh-based manager at an exciting time; Amati launched the TB Amati Strategic Metals Fund last year, further extending its product suite in May with the launch of the TB Amati Strategic Innovation Fund.
Commenting on the appointment, Founder and CEO, Dr Paul Jourdan said, “Growth in our professional intermediary client base, and the addition of two new fund propositions, made expansion of our sales team important for enabling us to continue delivering the high levels of service clients have come to expect, so we are delighted to welcome Tom to the team.”
