Macartney is set to join Jupiter AM in September when he transitions from Columbia Threadneedle. He will begin to help manage Jupiter’s range of European equities funds which include their £4.6bn Jupiter European, €1.3bn Jupiter European Growth, and the company’s Pan-European smaller companies strategy fund.

Macartney joins additional key players coming over from Columbia Threadneedle. He will report to Mark Nichols and Mark Heslop, co-heads of strategy for European equities, who also joined the business from Columbia Threadneedle in the past year.

Macartney will work alongside assistant fund manager Sohil Chotai and equities analyst Nikisha Mistry, who will join the team in the second half of the year as part of the proposed integration of Merian Global Investors.

He was previously vice-president and fund manager of Columbia Threadneedle’s UK equities team. He also served as co-manager of the £55m Threadneedle Mid-250 fund and deputy manager of the £108m UK long-short Threadneedle UK Absolute Alpha UCITS fund.

Phil is an exceptional talent, possessed of an inquisitive mind and we are excited about the positive impact he will have on our team and the funds we manage. We believe Phil’s natural drive and his aptitude for bottom-up stock selection will complement our existing resource.

Nichols said

The appointments of Mark Nichols and Mark Heslop in 2019 marked a real turning point for our European Growth strategy and we have been delighted to see the strategy go from strength to strength ever since, continuing to deliver strong returns for investors despite a very challenging market backdrop.

As the strategy continues to grow we are pleased to be adding further high quality resource to this important management team.

CIO Stephen Pearson added

Earlier this month Jupiter committed to a significant shakeup of its product range following its merger with Merian, with seven managers exiting and a number of sales staff being made redundant.

On the whole, 35 Merian funds have moved to Jupiter, 23 of which are equity mandates with the rest being fixed income, specialist, and multi-asset funds.

The Merian integration as well as the pickups of key players via Columbia Threadneedle show Jupiter aims to cement themselves as an even bigger player in the European market.
