Liontrust Asset Management Plc (Liontrust) has appointed James Beddall as co-head International Sales assisting with the opening of a Luxembourg office.
He will work alongside Jonathan Hughes-Morgan, selling Liontrust’s Dublin range of funds through global banks, private banks, multi-managers and institutional investors internationally, with the primary focus being on Continental Europe. Beddall will market the funds in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Benelux and Nordic regions.
John Ions, Chief Executive of Liontrust, says: “Expanding our sales effort in Continental Europe is the logical next step after the very strong growth in AuM we have generated in the UK over the past four years.”
Beddall joins Liontrust from F&C Investments where he was head of International Wholesale Sales. He moved to Thames River Capital in 2007, which was then acquired by F&C in September 2010. Overall, he has 17 years of experience in international sales.
