Anna Macdonald is standing down as a fund manager for Amati Global Investors. She said: “I have so much enjoyed my time working at Amati, together with such a great team. I now look forward to taking some time out to spend with my daughters.”

Paul Jourdan, Founder and CEO, said: “We have enjoyed working with Anna and thank her for her contribution over the last five years. We wish her all the best for the future.” The ongoing UK equities team, which is responsible for the management of the flagship TB Amati UK Listed Smaller Companies Fund, Amati AIM VCT, and Amati AIM IHT Portfolio Service, “remains well-resourced and fully staffed”, added Jourdan. The team consists of three fund managers – Dr Paul Jourdan, David Stevenson, and Scott McKenzie – and analyst Dr Gareth Blades.
