Jamie Carter, Chief Executive of Oldfield Partners, is appointed Chairman, succeeding Dominic Johnson, who steps down having completed a full term as Chairman.

IIMI, an association of leading independent asset management firms, announces the appointment of Jamie Carter as Chairman, succeeding Dominic Johnson, who steps down having completed a full term as Chairman.

Susannah de Jager will assume the role of Deputy Chairman, previously held by Jamie, while Jonathon Read has been appointed into the [newly created] position of Policy Director. Both appointments are effective immediately.

Jamie Carter is the Chief Executive and one of the founding partners of Oldfield Partners (OP), a boutique fund management firm which manages circa $4 billion for endowment funds, pension funds, charities, family offices, and high net worth individuals.

Susannah de Jager is a Partner and the Chief Operating Officer of S. W. Mitchell Capital, a European equities boutique managing $2bn. She joined SWMC in late 2010 and headed up the business development team with particular focus on the US and marketing of the firm more generally until 2014 when she took on the role of COO. Susannah was made a Partner in January 2015.

Jonathon Read is Chairman and Founding Director of Your Credit Union, as well as Advisor to the Board of Civilised Investments Ltd. He is also Founder of Triborough Opportunities, a charity formed to encourage financial literacy and promote sustainable financial inclusion.

Founded in 2010, IIMI speaks for owner-managed firms concerned with the alignment of interests with clients, and aims to offer an independent, expert voice in the debate over the future of financial regulation and competition.

“First as a board member, and more recently as Deputy Chairman, it has been a privilege working alongside Dominic as he has led the NCI. The next few years will be important for the boutique asset management industry and I am looking forward to working alongside Susannah, Jonathon and the rest of the team as we seek to amplify our members’ voices and help shape the debate on financial reform and the positioning of the industry post-Brexit.”

It has been an honour working at the helm of the NCI and I am pleased to be leaving the role in such capable hands. I look forward to continuing my support of the NCI as a member of the board as we continue to advocate the vital role played by boutique asset managers in our economy.”
