Jupiter appoints head of Multi-Asset strategy


Jupiter Asset Management has appointed Talib Sheikh as Head of Strategy, Multi-Asset. He joins the business in June and will report directly to Chief Investment Officer, Stephen Pearson (pictured).

Sheikh joins from JP Morgan Asset Management where he has worked for nearly 20 years as a managing director and portfolio manager. He was instrumental in the formation and growth of the Multi-Asset Solutions team since its inception in 2004. Sheikh has a strong performance track record over this time, managing a number of products including multi-asset income, target return and flexible balanced funds.
Due to demand from clients across Europe and Asia, the strategies managed by Sheikh and the team have experienced significant AUM growth over the past five years. This includes the EUR24.5 billion JP Morgan Global Income Fund and the 1yr, 3yr, 5yr top decile JP Morgan Macro Opportunities Fund plus diversified institutional accounts.
Sheikh will be working closely with an established team of highly experienced professionals in the asset class including fund managers Lee Manzi and Rhys Petheram. He will also draw on the expertise of the full breadth of Jupiter’s 74-strong active fund management team.
Stephen Pearson, Chief Investment Officer, says: “We are delighted to have attracted someone of Talib’s calibre and look forward to his arrival at Jupiter. Talib’s skillset is perfectly aligned with our strategic initiative to expand our international footprint in the Multi-Asset area, and he is well placed to spearhead this.  
Katharine Dryer, Head of Investments, Fixed Income and Multi-Asset, says: “Demonstrated over time and in a variety of market environments, Talib offers a powerful combination of active asset allocation and portfolio construction skills. Working closely with our existing team of specialists, his proven track record and broad product experience should enable us to equip our clients to meet their diverse investment goals in changing markets.”
Sheikh says: “I am looking forward to joining Jupiter, having been impressed throughout the process by the dynamic and talented people I have met. The opportunity to build on the existing foundations of Jupiter’s multi-asset business is an attractive proposition, and I am excited by the prospect of harnessing the active management skill in the business to deliver solutions for a global client base.”
