UK investment house Morley Fund Management has bolstered its corporate research team with the appointment of David Oxley.
Oxley joins as an investment analyst covering pan-European industrial companies and will report to head of corporate research, Donald Tosh.
Prior to joining Morley, Oxley was at Royal & Sun Alliance Investments, having started at Sun Alliance Investment Management in 1991. Most recently he held responsibility for the capital goods sectors of the pan-European equity portfolios.
Oxley’s arrival follows hot on the heels of several analyst appointments at Morley, including Tanya Clarke as a global oils and chemicals analyst in April and Richard Purkiss and Henry Astarajian as biotech analysts in March.
