The new hire will join the firm at the end of the year.
Management has appointed Roger Yates as an independent
Yates has more than 30 years' experience in the asset management industry, having previously worked as chief executive of formerly London-listed Henderson Group for ten years, which has since merged with US firm Janus Capital Group, as reported by this publication.
He has also previously worked as a non-executive director at IG Group Holdings, F&C Asset Management and Electra Private Equity, and is currently a non-executive at St James's Place and JPMorgan Elect.
"Jupiter will benefit greatly from Roger's broad industry experience, particularly that gained as CEO of a UK listed asset manager and as a non-executive director of a number of UK financial services companies. We look forward to the perspective and insight he will bring to our board discussions as we seek to build on our successful growth strategy," chairman Liz Airey said in a statement late last week.
