The fund will remain under the stewardship of Anthony Eaton who has been managing the fund for over 10 years. Anthony will remain at JM Finn & Co, which will act as the sub-investment manager, appointed by Thornbridge.

James Edgedale, Chairman of JM Finn & Co commented, “These changes are a win-win; Anthony remains as manager of the fund, we focus on our core proposition of managing private client portfolios, Thornbridge hits the ground running with a proven investment fund and, most importantly, the investors in the fund retain the continuity of their investment manager. In addition, we are pleased to retain the investment expertise that Anthony brings to our broader investment proposition.”
