London-headquartered Alvarium Investments, an independent investment management firm and multi-family office, has appointed Nancy Curtin as group chief investment officer (CIO), partner and head of investment advisory.
Based in London, Curtin will also join the company’s operational and executive boards, reporting to Alexander de Meyer, CEO of Alvarium.
De Meyer said: 'We are delighted to welcome Nancy to Alvarium. She brings exceptional and unrivalled experience to our multi-asset investment strategy. Nancy will play a pivotal role in shaping the future growth of the firm, as we continue to scale our global footprint.'
Curtin has over 20 years’ experience holding senior roles in wealth and institutional asset management, private equity and hedge fund investing. She was formerly chief investment officer and head of investments at Close Brothers Asset Management from 2010.
From 2002 to 2010, Curtin was managing partner and chief investment officer of Fortune Asset Management, the UK-based hedge fund and long-only institutional advisory business.
Her previous roles included a spell at Internet Finance Partners, a specialist venture capital business of Schroders, as well as senior positions at Schroders and Baring Asset Management.
Curtin is also a non-executive director of a US public board focused on private equity real estate with an increasing focus on digital infrastructure.
Curtin succeeds Neil Beaton, who has served as CIO since 2011, when he led a management buyout of Deloitte’s Investment Advisory business, of which he was the partner in charge. Beaton will remain in a full-time position as a partner of Alvarium, client relationship manager and member of the investment committee.
'In a time of increasing volatility, I am excited to be part of a firm that can offer the full spectrum of public and private markets to achieve client objectives as well as offering clients access to a global network of powerful co-investment and collaboration opportunities, particularly in the coveted areas of real estate and innovation and technology investments,' said Curtin.
