Thesis Asset Management has hired Tim Harman as an investment manager, in an effort to support the firm’s “ambitious growth plans”.
Mr Harman, who has more than 15 years of experience within financial services, was previously head of Canadian equities in Europe for the Royal Bank of Canada, and has also held roles at BMO Financial Group and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
At Thesis, Mr Harman will be responsible for new and existing client relationships, as well as helping to grow assets for the Guildford office, which currently manages over £120 million. He joins the business in a period of growth as it looks to expand following the acquisition of DFM Cambridge Fund Managers in late 2017.
“Thesis hopes to make more acquisitions in the coming months,” the firm said in a statement.
Lawrence Cook, director of marketing and business development at Thesis, added: “We are confident Tim will be able to help us in delivering what is an ambitious growth strategy following the acquisition in 2017. This appointment signals our intent in growing this office and the wider business, and I am sure Tim will be at the forefront of that initiative.”
Chichester-headquartered Thesis has approximately £14.2 billion of funds under management and administration (as at 30 September 2017), and invests on behalf of private clients, charities, pension funds and trusts.
