Wingate Asset Management has appointed Thomas Hodson as a senior investment analyst, responsible for equity research and risk analysis.
Mr Hodson makes the move to Wingate Asset Management from a similar role at UCA Funds Management.
Wingate Asset Management chief investment officer Chad Padowitz said Mr Hodson has more than 15 years' experience in the financial services industry in the UK.
"Thomas has worked in research and portfolio management roles throughout his career for firms including JB Were, AllianceBernstein, UCA Funds and Austock in Australia, and Barclays in London," Mr Padowitz said.
"At Barclays, he was responsible for managing portfolios on behalf of key clients and family offices serviced by the bank, including ultra-high-net-worth individuals, pension and sovereign wealth funds, and charities.
"Thomas’ experience as an investment and portfolio analyst across a range of asset classes, coupled with his extensive experience in the development of proprietary in-house research, risk management and monitoring techniques, makes him a good fit for the business," he said.
