Ravenscroft has appointed its group head of fund research to the board of its investment management business.
Samantha Dovey has joined Mark Bousfield, Ben Byrom and Bob Tannahill on the board of Ravenscroft Investment Management Limited, which is responsible for the group’s discretionary investment management business and range of Huntress funds.
“Sam has more than 20 years’ experience in the investment industry and her knowledge and understanding of fund research has been invaluable to Ravenscroft. As the investment management business grows, her insight and expertise will strengthen the board and ensure that we continue to stay true to our long-term, thematic approach to investing,” said Mr Bousfield.
Mrs Dovey started her career as an accountant before moving into banking and then into investments. She joined Ravenscroft in 2013 with responsibility for research and oversight of funded investments and is part of the multi-manager team. Her role was expanded earlier this year when she became group head of fund research and now includes broad oversight of the funded solutions used by Ravenscroft’s advisory teams and the offerings of its sister company in the UK Vartan Ravenscroft.
“Training as a chartered accountant has given me insight into all types of businesses as well as making me look at problems slightly differently, thinking about processes and identifying where improvements can be made. My time in the banking sector gave me an excellent understanding of financial products as well as looking at credit facilities and covenants on loans, as well my introduction to investment products, which sparked my passion for all things analytical, all of which have been useful for my fund research role,’ said Mrs Dovey, who is a chartered accountant and chartered financial analyst.
“I am a problem solver at heart, have an inquisitive brain and enjoy being challenged, attributes I think will benefit the board.”
Ravenscroft recently released its annual report which showed it now had £7.45bn of assets under administration for private and institutional clients around the world. The investment services group has offices in Guernsey, Jersey and the UK.
“I’m going to enjoy having more involvement in guiding Ravenscroft into the future. Ravenscroft is a client centric business and ensuring that ethos remains at the heart of what we do as the business continues to grow is crucial and I am looking forward to being an integral part of the team,” said Mrs Dovey.
