Artemis Investment Management has poached rival Kames Capital’s sustainability team.
Craig Bonthron, Neil Goddin, Jonathan Parsons and Ryan Smith will join Artemis in Autumn to launch a sustainable global equity fund.
The four worked together at Kames Capital where they managed “significant” assets, including the Kames Global Sustainability Equity fund.
At Artemis, they will be based in Edinburgh and report to the firm’s chief investment officer Matthew Beesley.
Artemis’ Senior Partner, Mark Murray, said: “Considering impact and investing according to ESG principles are essential parts of fund management. We continue to build on the progress we have made to ensure that these important factors are integral to our business.”
“The arrival of this experienced and respected team, with their focus on impact, will allow us to build on that progress - as we continue to concentrate on meeting our clients’ needs.”
