Heartwood Investment Management, the asset management arm of Handelsbanken in UK, has appointed Graham Bishop to look after Heartwood’s Balanced investment strategy, including the LF Heartwood Balanced Multi Asset fund.
Graham Bishop, investment director, joined Heartwood in 2017 and will take over the strategy from fellow Investment director, Michael Stanes. Since joining Heartwood Bishop has been responsible for Heartwood’s asset allocation process and he will continue with this role.
Michael Stanes will continue to manage Heartwood’s Growth investment strategy, including the LF Heartwood Growth Multi Asset fund, and he will continue to lead Heartwood’s equity research team.
Noland Carter, chief investment officer and head of Heartwood Investment Management, said: “Since Bishop joined us he has played a key role driving our asset allocation process and now that he is thoroughly embedded in Heartwood this change of responsibility for the balanced strategy is a natural evolution. This change will also allow Michael Stanes to increase his focus on Heartwood’s Growth strategy and our equity research.”
