Newton Investment Management
, part of BNY Mellon Investment Management, has announced the appointment this week of Judy Marlinski as the new chair of Newton Investment Management Limited (UK board) and Newton Investment Management North America, LLC (US board), effective from 4 November 2022. 

Marlinski has served as an independent non-executive board member of the UK and US boards since July 2022, the firm said in a statement. She is succeeding Susan Noble as chair of the UK board, who is stepping down after serving eight years as a board member and five years as its chair.
Marlinski’s appointment as chair for Newton’s UK and US boards supports the expansion of Newton’s US business following the integration of Mellon’s equity and multi asset capabilities in September 2021, the firm continued. She will help to ensure coordination across Newton UK and Newton US in setting and implementing Newton’s strategy.
She has 35 years of experience in financial services, having held the CEO, president and COO positions within the investment management and wealth management industries of Fidelity Investments, including as president and CEO of Fidelity Investments Japan from 2011 to 2016 and president of Fidelity Institutional Asset Management from 2017 to 2020. 

During her tenure with Fidelity Investments, she was a director for several regulatory boards across the firm’s businesses. 
Welcoming the move, Euan Munro, CEO of Newton, said: “We’re delighted that Judy has been appointed chair of the Newton Investment Management Limited and Newton Investment Management North America, LLC boards. She brings a tremendous amount of global experience and pedigree to this role which will be invaluable as we continue to meet the needs of our clients through an expanded global platform.”
“A big thank you to Susan for her eight years of service as a board member. Her counsel and leadership have made a significant contribution in shaping Newton’s growth, and we wish her all the best for the next stage of her career,” he continued.

Global corporate, private client and fund services provider, appointed Annabel Kerley FCA as head of fraud and financial crime to strengthen its forensic services team. 
As a partner specialising in investigations, Kerley will build and grow Evelyn Partners’ forensic services practice, working with David Alexander, head of forensic services, and John Holden, head of forensic technology, the firm said in a statement. 
She is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales and a former senior investigator at the Serious Fraud Office and Financial Conduct Authority. She is joining from boutique forensic firm StoneTurn where she founded the London investigations practice. Previously, she held a senior position at EY, the firm continued. 
During her 20-year career, Kerley has led investigations into asset misappropriation, employee misconduct, financial misstatement, sanctions breaches, market abuse and misleading statements in civil, regulatory and criminal contexts, the firm said. She has helped clients across multiple sectors navigate high-stakes investigations into complex multi-million cross-border fraud, bribery and corruption cases.   
In addition, she has experience of private prosecutions and is currently chair of the Private Prosecutors’ Association. 
Welcoming her to the firm, Alexander said: “With financial crime on the rise, organisations operating today increasingly require specialist forensic support to protect value in their business. Annabel offers unique expertise gained across a wide range of geographies, industries and regulators to help clients mitigate the impact of fraud and misconduct. Annabel’s ability to lead multi-disciplinary teams and deploy the latest forensic technology and forensic accounting techniques make her a valuable addition to the Evelyn Partners team."  
Evelyn Partners is a UK-integrated professional services and wealth management group – formed from the merger of Smith & Williamson and Tilney. It looks after clients’ combined wealth and tax needs both personal and business, and has £52.0 billion ($61 billion) of assets under management.
