Humphries joins as Fund Manager in the Global Equity investment team having previously worked in the Schroders’ Quantitative Equity Products team in London and in the Pioneer Investments’ Global Quantitative Research team. Jeremy holds a Masters in Quantitative Finance and a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.
 
Paul Giblin, Chief Executive of Davy Asset Management, says: “I am delighted to welcome such a highly regarded professional as Phil Jefferson to our board. Phil’s extensive experience and achievements across the UK institutional, wholesale and retail investor market will be a great asset and provide a sounding board to our business as we continue to grow in the UK and Europe.
 
“Following recent appointments in the UK, the appointment of Jeremy to our fund management team is also an important hire for us, and provides us with further expertise as we grow in this market. Jeremy will play an important role in our now 9 strong global equity fund management team, where performance across the funds continues to out-perform the peer group average.”
 
Jefferson says: “I was delighted to be asked to join the Davy Asset Management board at such an exciting time in the growth of this venerable firm. Davy has an enviable reputation within financial services in Ireland, the UK and Europe. I hope to support and guide the senior management team as they continue to grow the business.”
