Waverton announces appointment of Ian Enslin to the Waverton Charities team

London, 31st March, 2014: Waverton Investment Management  is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Enslin to its  charities team. Having successfully managed large charity and institutional money in his previous roles, Ian brings with him a wealth of experience.

Ian will be actively involved in contributing to Waverton’s investment process as well as take-on and management of new mandates. He will also be instrumental in further developing the service offered to charities.

As an experienced hire, Ian complements the core charities team, comprising Directors with an average of 21 years in the industry. As part of this team, Ian will focus on managing segregated, multi and single asset class investment mandates.

Ian Enslin commented on his new role:

“I am very pleased to join Waverton because it is one of the few houses left in the industry that truly invests globally through direct securities to construct transparent segregated portfolios, backed by internally generated research. They also put a strong emphasis on the service element of a client relationship, a feature which is often overlooked by the sector.”

James Pike, Head of Charities, said: “There is a growing need for a highly personalised investment  service in the charities sector. We recognise this as a firm and are therefore focused on continuing to give our clients the opportunity to work directly with their portfolio managers. Our charities clients will benefit significantly from Ian’s strategic thinking in the investment arena.”
