Jupiter hires Newton’s McAleer as head of dealing

Jupiter has appointed Jason McAleer as head of dealing, following the departure of the group’s former head of dealing Jane Philips in September 2013.

Before joining Jupiter McAleer worked at Newton Investment Management for 14 years, where he held the role of head of dealing for the past nine years.

Prior to this, McAleer worked as a dealer for both Sarasin Investment Management and Chase Asset Management.

In his new role at Jupiter McAleer will oversee a team of eight dealers.

Jupiter head of investment risk and fund operations Rupert Corfield says: “We are delighted to welcome an individual of Jason’s calibre to Jupiter.

”His broad experience and knowledge will be of significant benefit as we develop our fund management operations, both with regard to geography and financial instruments.”

McAleer adds: “Jupiter is a highly-regarded company with significant potential and I am delighted to be joining the firm as it seeks to expand.”
