BMAM recruits Head of Investment Strategy


Brooks Macdonald Asset Management (BMAM) has appointed Gemma Godfrey as an Investment Director and the Head of Investment Strategy. Godfrey will join BMAM’s Investment Committee (IC) and will be based out of the firm’s London office.

As part of her role on the IC, Godfrey will sit on the Asset Allocation committee, which is responsible for the framework of the investment proposition, take the leading role in formulating and communicating BMAM’s economic research for both clients and IFAs while also taking on responsibilities for expanding BMAM’s social and print media profile.  Raising the profile of the Brooks Macdonald Group is a key strategy for business growth and is consistent with the recent announcement of the Group’s sponsorship deal with Middlesex County Cricket Club.

An official CNBC contributor, Godfrey is also a leading financial commentator on Sky News, the BBC and in the Daily Telegraph. Profiled by The Sunday Times on the ascent of Women in the Boardroom, she is on the Advisory Board of Templars and independently acts as a Spokesperson for the Alternative Investment Management Association.

She was previously the Chairman of the Investment Committee at Credo Capital Plc, the independently owned private client wealth manager. Prior to that she was a Fund Manager for Julius Baer and responsible for Latin American Investments at GAM. She has also spent time in investment teams at both Goldman Sachs and UBS, and is a Quantum Physicist by background.
Nick Holmes, Joint Managing Director of BMAM, says: “We are delighted to welcome Gemma to our team and see this as an important strategic hire for the London business. Her excellent communication skills, media contacts and investment expertise will be a real asset to the Group in our internal and external communications for 2012 and beyond and we look forward to having her on board.”

Godfrey says: “Brooks Macdonald impressed me with their culture and ethos, excellent reputation within the IFA community and their sound investment credentials. It is clear to me that the business is a true leader in the wealth management industry. The firm has seen remarkable growth in assets while remaining true to its core value of providing the best for clients whilst leaping forward in terms of innovation, which is a rare feat in the industry. The opportunity to build on this success is very exciting.”
