Editorial Staff, 30 September 2020


The latest senior moves in asset and wealth management from across Europe and the UK.

Newton Investment Management
Newton Investment Management, part of BNY Mellon Investment Management, has appointed Louise Kernohan as UK equities portfolio manager. She is starting in November and will manage the BNY Mellon UK Equity and the BNY Mellon UK Opportunities Funds alongside Simon Nichols and Ben Smith.

Kernohan joins from Aberdeen Standard Investments, where she was an investment director of UK equities. She managed the ASI UK Equity and ASI UK Responsible funds, as well as co-managed the Dunedin Income Growth Investment Trust. Prior to that, she was senior investment manager in the firm's pan-European equity team.

Fund manager Hawksford has added three senior figures to its global team, responding to "intentional growth in corporate services to institutional, fund and capital market clients globally,” the firm said.  In Jersey, Gavin Wilkins is joining as global head of client and intermediary relationships, and Ross Rennie as manager of corporate services. Serene Lim is joining as associate director in Singapore.

Wilkins brings significant international experience in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and will lead commercial and strategic initiatives for the group.

With expertise in real estate, Rennie will manage the Jersey office’s corporate services team which administers investment structures in a variety of asset classes, including real estate, structured finance, and technology.

Lim, who is joining in Singapore from TMF, has a background in capital markets and structured finance, including trust structuring and succession planning for BVI and Cayman Trusts. She also sits as a secretary at the STEP Singapore branch.
