Vam Funds expands UK sales team


Investment boutique Vam Funds has appointed Andrew Janes and Dean Currie as business development managers.

Primarily based in the UK, they will work under Nigel Watson, global sales director, to support Vam’s UK expansion plans.

Vam is currently seeking FSA registration for its funds.

Janes has over 15 years’ experience as an investment sales professional, and has been responsible for developing business across a range of channels which have included IFAs, networks, offshore life companies and Sipp providers. Most recently Janes worked as business development manager for the South at SIP Nordic UK where his role included the development of new products.

Currie has more than ten years’ experience in the financial services industry, working for companies such as Aegon and Fidelity. Most recently he has worked as director of investment sales at Ignition Investments, where he was responsible for creating, developing and implementing a sales strategy to gain investment into new funds.

Nigel Watson, sales director at Vam, says: “We believe that our biggest opportunity for growth in 2010 is in the UK. There is a large appetite for boutiques in the UK and we aim to take advantage of this, by raising funds through both the retail and institutional IFA market. The Vam fund range will be available to UK investors predominantly through PBBs, platforms and discretionary managers. We are delighted to welcome Andrew and Dean to the team and are confident their experience and knowledge will help drive us to reach, and exceed, our targets.”
