What’s New In Investments, Funds? – Nomura AM, Fladgate

The latest moves and appointments in wealth management in the UK, the rest of Europe, the Middle East and other select locations.

Nomura Asset Management
Tokyo-headquartered Nomura Asset Management has appointed Kapish Patel as co-portfolio manager on its Corporate Hybrid Bond Fund – launched in August – to bolster the team

Based in London, Patel will report to Julian Marks, head of corporate hybrid bonds, the firm said in a statement.

“Kapish has significant experience in the corporate hybrid bond market, which continues to grow as issuers seek to optimise their capital structures, support their credit ratings and minimise their weighted cost of capital by issuing these bonds,” Marks said.

Patel previously worked with Marks at Neuberger Berman. He joined Neuberger Berman in 2016 and was an associate portfolio manager on the investment grade credit team with a specific focus on non-US dollar corporate bonds. Prior to that, he worked as an investment manager at Killik & Co. 

London-based law firm Fladgate has appointed Simon Goldring as partner in its dispute resolution practice, alongside a team of three associates, to bolster its private wealth offering.

Goldring, who joined the firm in January, has over 10 years of experience advising on contentious trusts and probate matters, working with settlors, beneficiaries, executors and trustees on a broad range of contentious matters, the firm said in a statement. He also has private wealth and commercial dispute experience, counselling individuals, family offices, charities and corporate entities on a wide array of estate planning solutions and corporate transactions. 

“Private capital is increasingly important to us as a firm, and Simon’s appointment is a serious indicator of our investment in this space. Simon’s overlapping specialisms in dispute resolution and private wealth are highly valued and align perfectly with Fladgate’s broader aspirations,” Jonathan Riley, partner and head of private wealth at Fladgate, said.

Goldring follows the recent appointment of Georgia Quenby as a partner in its funds, finance and regulatory practice and the hires of M&A partner Tessa Trevelyan Thomas and commercial outsourcing and tech law partner Nathan Evans earlier this year, the firm said.

Goldring will be joined at Fladgate by an established private wealth disputes team with whom he worked closely at his former practice, comprising senior associate Rosalind Hetherington and associates Emilly Chalk and Jerry Jamieson.
