Thesis Asset Management plc, the investment manager focused on professional partnerships, is delighted to announce that James Nield has been appointed office director of its Chichester office.
Nield joined the business in 2014 as an investment manager from Oriel Securities, where he was a partner. A specialist in UK equities, he began his career at Cazenove Fund Management, where he spent five years as assistant manager of a global emerging markets fund.
James takes over the role today (Monday 14 September 2015) from Michael Lally, who has been with Thesis since 1978. Lally will remain as a director and a core part of the Thesis investment team, continuing to manage his existing clients and driving the firm’s investment strategy forward.
As office director, James will be responsible for leading and developing the Chichester team. Commenting on his appointment, James Nield said:
“I am thrilled to be appointed as office director in our Chichester head office. The core of everything we do is relationship management and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to sustain and build on our existing contact base of clients, financial advisers, lawyers and accountants.”
Michael Lally said: “After many years leading the team in our Chichester office, I am very happy to hand the office director role to James. Having only joined us at the beginning of last year, he has contributed hugely to the business and his wealth of experience is enviable making him the natural choice for the role.”
