Miton has appointed Jim Wright to join the firm next year as the manager on a planned infrastructure fund.
Wright joins from the British Steel Pension Fund, where he has managed the global duration equity portfolio since 2006.
Ian Dighé, chairman of Miton, says the planned fund launch is part of its “continued strategy to deliver differentiated funds that are tailored to our clients’ requirements”.
Dighé says Wright brings “proven performance investing in global infrastructure”.
Wright, who has 19 years experience, previously worked at Arthur Andersen & Co, Hill Samuel Asset management, Lehman Brothers and M&G investments.
