Tilney hires chief investment officer


UK investment management and financial planning group Tilney has hired Christopher Godding as chief investment officer, subject to regulatory approval.

Godding will replace existing CIO Gareth Lewis who is taking up a new role at Tilney as managing director of investment strategy where he will focus on new business development and high value clients.
Lewis will remain on the asset allocation committee, chair the investment governance committee and is joining the board of its Dublin fund range.
Godding is an experienced chief investment officer who previously served for nine years as CIO at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management in London and was also CIO and head of the global equity team at Signia Wealth.
He previously worked as fund manager for Moore Capital and SG Asset Management.
He joins Tilney from Rubicon Fund Management.
As CIO Godding will lead the group’s asset allocation process and central investment teams. Following its acquisitions of Towry and Ingenious Asset Management last year, Tilney is responsible for over GBP21 billion of assets on behalf of private investors, charities and professionals principally through managed portfolios and the Tilney fund range. Godding will also join the Tilney executive committee. 
Godding says: “Tilney has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s leading discretionary investment management and financial planning businesses, with award winning investment track records built on a rigorous and disciplined investment process. After the successful integrations of 2016, this is very exciting time to be joining Tilney.”
Peter Hall, chief executive offer of Tilney, says: “We are delighted that Chris is joining Tilney as our chief investment officer and a member of the senior management team. Chris is an absolutely top-calibre CIO with extensive investment experience and he will be a great successor in the role to Gareth who has delivered exceptionally strong investment performance. Together, Gareth’s new role in supporting the growth of our investment management business and the appointment of Chris as CIO further reinforces our position as a leading UK investment manager.”
