SLI adds to Hambi’s fund of funds team

Standard Life Investments has completed the expansion of Bambos Hambi’s MyFolio Fund Solutions team with the appointment of a new analyst.

Joe Wiggins has joined the team from Stamford Associates as a senior investment analyst. He will be based in London and hold responsibility for analysing the corporate bond, Asian equity and property sectors.

Wiggins worked at Stamford Associates between 2011 and 2014 as an investment analyst. Prior to this he was at Principal Investment Management and Chelsea Financial Services.

His appointment follows the recent recent arrival on the team of Daniel Reynolds and Mark Lane as investment analysts and takes the size of the team to nine members.

Hambi says: “In the last financial year alone, the range has witnessed around 80 per cent growth in assets, so it is little wonder that we have felt the need to recruit and bolster the industry-leading research capability we offer.

“I am delighted to welcome Joe, Mark and Daniel into the team and believe that with over 30 years of combined experience in the industry, their contribution to our research capability will be significant and will help us continue to deliver for our clients.”
