Jupiter promotes Stephen Pearson to Chief Investment Officer

RELATED TOPICS​

Jupiter has promoted Stephen Pearson (pictured) to the position of Chief Investment Officer (CIO). Pearson, who has 29 years’ experience in the asset management industry, joined Jupiter as a European equities fund manager in 2001.

He was appointed by John Chatfeild-Roberts as Deputy CIO in July 2012 and was promoted to Head of Investments a year later, giving up running money to take on the day to day running of the investment floor.
 
As Chief Investment Officer, Pearson’s role will be to maintain Jupiter’s reputation as a high alpha investment house. He will ensure that fund managers have the resources they need to deliver outperformance and that the business has the breadth and depth of talent it needs to grow.
 
Pearson takes over this role from John Chatfeild-Roberts, who has chosen to focus his time on the Jupiter Merlin multi-manager portfolios, the largest of Jupiter’s investment strategies with assets of over GBP8 billion. Chatfeild-Roberts will remain a Director of Jupiter Fund Management plc with Stephen taking on his position as CIO on Jupiter’s Executive Committee.
 
Chatfeild-Roberts says: “Jupiter has grown substantially and the assets managed by the Jupiter Merlin team have doubled since I became CIO in 2010. I have encouraged Stephen to take the lead on managing the investment team so it is a natural evolution for him to take on the role. As a result, I can devote my time to the job I enjoy the most: investing the Jupiter Merlin portfolios.”
 
Pearson says: “Jupiter is an attractive place for fund managers to work, with its distinctive culture of individuality, investment autonomy and personal accountability. We have grown our fund management resources significantly in recent years both internally and by recruiting external talent. I am excited about taking the team forward to ensure we deliver both attractive products and strong performance over the long term for our clients.”
