JH&P hires former Aberdeen Standard charity head
James Hambro & Partners has enhanced its charity team with the recruitment of portfolio manager Patrick Trueman.
Trueman, who was former head of charities at Aberdeen Standard Capital and a fund manager at Newton Investment Management, will work closely with JH&P’s charity head, Nicola Barber.
He said: “I’m genuinely delighted to be joining a growing business that has established a strong reputation for investment excellence and outstanding client service. There’s a real depth of expertise across the investment team, and the firm’s global outlook provides a compelling edge. In an increasingly unstable and volatile climate, this international perspective has never been more important. The institutional-quality direct equity expertise means that portfolios can be tailored to meet the precise ethical requirements of clients.
“I had heard about the team spirit at JH&P, and now I’ve seen it for myself. I like the collegiate way of working, which ensures that all clients benefit from the firm’s best ideas and that there’s a consistency of approach. I also like the fact that, as portfolio managers, we work directly with charities and private clients rather than through relationship managers – the investment manager builds the portfolio and the relationships, and that’s a very rewarding way to work.”
Trueman brings specialist sector expertise to the JH&P team. He has served as a trustee of a national charity and sat on the investment committee of the country’s first dedicated children’s charity.
He said: “My experience managing charity money for years and working so closely in the management of charities means I understand the financial challenges many are facing today. This is an extremely challenging time for a lot of organisations, with an uncertain funding outlook. Prudent financial management is more important than ever and managing charity investments well is a key part of that.”
Andy Steel, CEO of James Hambro & Partners, said: “The charity sector is an important part of our business, and it’s a real coup to bring someone of Patrick’s experience and calibre into the team.”
