UK - Newton Investment Management has appointed JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management's Audrey Lowrie as fund manager within its UK team.
Lowrie, who joins the firm in late May, will run Newton’s UK institutional equities and global multi-asset portfolios.
Jeff Munroe, Newton’s chief investment officer, said: “We are very pleased that Audrey Lowrie is joining the Newton team. She has valuable experience managing UK equities, primarily institutional mandates, but also retail funds over a long period of time. We believe she will add significantly to our already disciplined and robust investment process.”
During her time at JP Morgan, Lowrie managed assets in excess of £5bn, focusing on the UK equity portions of the UK balanced funds, and the firms’ global and EAFE mandates. Prior to that, she worked at HSBC.
