He was previously a managing director/portfolio manager at Ramius Capital Group from 2003 to 2010. His investment career spans over 20 years, of which six years have been at Schroders. He is a CFA charter holder.
Jones will continue in her role as fund manager and head of the team until 31 March 2019. During this time, a comprehensive handover of responsibilities will be completed. Jones will be available in an advisory capacity for several months, Schroders said.
