JO Hambro poaches F&C’s Ulrich for Wood’s UK fund

JO Hambro Capital Management has hired former F&C manager Michael Ulrich to work alongside John Wood on the UK Opportunities fund.

Ulrich will work alongside lead fund manager Wood, fund manager Rachel Reutter and analyst Todd King on the £1.6bn UK fund. He joins in mid-August.

He left F&C in April this year, where he most recently managed the F&C UK Mid Cap Fund. Thomas Wilson took over that £30m fund at F&C.

“Michael is a multiple award-winning fund manager with an impressive performance record generated following a similar philosophy and approach to our own,” says Wood.
