SLC Asset Management (SLCAM) has appointed Jane Coffey as its new head of European equities.
Coffey will be responsible for over EUR1bn of European equities, which the group manages for both retail and institutional clients.
Coffey joins SLCAM from Morley Fund Management where she was director of European equities. Prior to Morley, she was a senior fund manager with St Pauls Investment Services, an associate director for Royal London Asset Management and before that, a portfolio manager for Provident Mutual.
She will report to Charles Brand, who joined SLCAM in March this year - also from Morley - as head of global equities.
