Appian appoints John Mattimoe as head of investment


Appian Asset Management, a boutique asset management company, has made several appointments to its board and executive team. 

John Mattimoe, formerly of Merrion Capital, joins as head of investment.

John Conway, formerly of Bank of Ireland Asset Management, has been recruited as a business development consultant and Martin O’Hora, who has 20 years’ experience in the investment industry, joins as the company’s new business development manager.
Appian has strengthened its board with the appointment of Kevin Menton as executive director with responsibility for strategic development. Martin Cronin, former Forfás chief executive, and Frank O’Brien, former director of fund management of Irish Life Investment Managers, have also joined the board as non-executive directors.
Patrick Lawless, Appian’s managing director, says: “We have taken this opportunity to make these senior appointments during a time that many other asset managers are downsizing. Our strong investment record since our inception in 2003 has meant an annualised 6.6 per cent return or put another way, EUR1m invested with us seven years ago is now worth EUR1.54m. Our conservative investment policy has meant that we have avoided buying both property and bank shares which we told our clients were overvalued at the time. Due to our performance we have started to attract interest from investors who tell us that they were not aware of the risks they were taking when investing elsewhere.”
