Reporting to Katharine Dryer, who heads the product specialist team at Jupiter, these new hires will provide additional support to some of our growing investment strategies and bring the recently-established product specialist team to full capacity. All three will have taken up their positions at Jupiter by the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2016.

Claudia Ripley joins Jupiter to work across all our UK equity funds, with a particular focus on those managed by Steve Davies and Ben Whitmore. She has nine years’ UK equity product experience, seven of which were spent as the Lead Retail Product Strategist on the BlackRock UK Active Equity Team.

Ingrid Tharasook joins from Coutts & Co.’s investment strategy team to cover our range of global emerging market equity funds. Her previous experience as a sector specialist in emerging market fixed income and Asian (including Japanese) equities will complement the management styles of Jason Pidcock and Ross Teverson as they look to build on recent momentum. A fluent Brazilian Portuguese and Thai speaker who has lived across four continents and has nine years’ investment experience, Ingrid brings a truly global perspective to her new role.

Fabrizio Palmucci joins the Fixed Income and Multi-Asset team to support recent growth in this area. Fabrizio spent five years developing the Pimco Source partnership as the Head of Fixed Income Product Management team at Source. Fluent in Italian, Spanish and French, Fabrizio will have a particularly strategic role to play in supporting our distribution teams as we increase our European footprint. His 14 years’ experience encompasses product management credit analysis and bond trading.

In addition, Tommy Kristoffersen has recently expanded his remit to cover the Jupiter Europa fund, an absolute return vehicle managed by Mike Buhl-Nielsen, alongside the work he already does with Cedric de Fonclare, Head of Strategy, European Opportunities. With these new hires, Jupiter will have 6 product specialists supporting various strategies.

Katharine Dryer, who heads the product specialist team at Jupiter, commented: “We are delighted to have attracted three talented professionals to these new roles. They will help us develop our communications with clients and enable our fund managers to stay focused on generating performance. The work of Alastair Irvine with the Jupiter Independent Funds team and Tommy Kristoffersen on Cedric de Fonclare’s team has demonstrated the value the product specialist role can provide as a key link between the investment and distribution teams. My congratulations go to all of the new recruits.”
