Kames appoints lead manager to Inflation Linked fund

Kames Capital has appointed Scott Jamieson as the new lead manager on its £285m Inflation Linked fund.

Jamieson previously worked as support manager for the Inflation Linked fund. The move follows Jones’ recent promotion to chief investment officer at Kames.

In his new role, Jamieson will replace the fund’s current manager Stephen Jones, who is now set to become support manager.

Jamieson also currently holds the position as head of the fund manager’s multi asset group.

Jones says: ”With the extension of my responsibilities within the wider group, I believed it would be beneficial to investors to hand over the day to day control of the fund to Scott. We have worked closely on the fund since its inception and this should have no impact on the successful way the fund is run.”
