Gravis nabs from Tilney for infrastructure fund

Gravis Capital Management has appointed William Argent from Tilney.

Argent becomes fund manager on the firm’s £220m VT UK Infrastructure Income Fund, which launched in January last year.

Argent has covered the UK-listed infrastructure universe for the last decade.

At Tilney he focussed on direct equities and closed-ended funds for private client portfolios.

Gravis director Stephen West says Argent brings a “new perspective to the company. 

“The key to infrastructure investing lies in identifying holdings, purchasing their long dated cash flows at a competitive price and locking in for the long term.
