Oxfordshier-based independent fund manager Evenlode has strengthened its investment team with the addition of analyst Chris Elliott.
Elliott will join Evenlode in March from the Oxford University Press, where he has been a software engineer for the past five years. A Cambridge graduate, Elliott studied economics and mathematics and holds all three levels of the CFA.
He will work alongside managers Hugh Yarrow and Ben Peters on the strongly-performing Evenlode Income Fund. Launched in October 2009, Evenlode Income has delivered a 13.8% annualised return since its inception to the end of 2014, against just 8.8% for the FTSE All Share.
“After more than five years since the launch of Evenlode Income, we believe the time is right to add some further resource to the team,” says Peters. “Chris, with his very strong analytical background, will be a great addition to the team."
