Neptune appoints Daniel Lee UK sales head

Neptune Investment Management has appoints Daniel Lee its UK sales head marking the first stage in its new distribution plans being led by former M&G chief executive Michael McLintock.

Lee was head of UK wholesale at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management and was previously head of discretionary sales at Cazenove Capital Management.

Joining in September, Lee will report to chief executive Robin Geffen and work closely with McLintock, who is a special adviser to the business.

Geffen describes Lee as one of the leading sales people in the business.

“This appointment, along with Michael McLintock, reaffirms our commitment to Neptune’s sales and distribution effort, as we move into a transformative phase for the industry as a whole,” Geffen says.

“These senior hires are a key move for the company, enabling our clients to access the very strong performance we have to offer across our fund range, as we ensure the business is resourced and positioned for the future.”

Lee says Neptune’s funds are ideally placed to do well in a stock-pickers market.

“Thorough, real-world analysis of global sectors and superb macro-economic research provide the ideal platform for managing concentrated funds that I strongly believe will appeal to a broad range of investors over the years ahead,” Lee says.

Lee has also worked as a sales director at Allianz Global Investors until September 2015.

The appointment of Lee is in conjunction with LGBR’s appointment, last year, to broaden Neptune’s reach across the wider IFA community.
