Simon Reynolds Joins the Octopus Multi Manager Team

Octopus Investments has hired Simon Reynolds into its Multi Manager team. Simon will be working alongside fund managers Colin Lunnon and Bish Limbu. He will be adding to the idea generation and research process across all asset classes, and will gradually take over some of the day to day portfolio management responsibilities in support of Colin and Bish.

Simon joins from the Australian multi manager Ipac, part of the AXA Group. Simon began his career at Mercer before joining AXA’s multi manager team in 2002. Before leaving for Australia in 2005, Simon worked alongside Colin and Bish in the Barclays multi manager team.

Since opening its first fund of funds in 2008, the Octopus Multi Manager team has attracted more than £1.2 billion in client money across a range of multi manager portfolios.

Lothar Mentel, Octopus chief investment officer and head of Multi Manager, commented: “With Octopus now managing more than £1.2 billion in multi manager funds, we’ve built a strong business in just three years. Simon is a vital part of stepping on from here, bringing more experience and expert fund research skills to the table.”

Reynolds added: “I’m looking forward to working with Colin and Bish again. I’m also excited at the opportunity to help the Octopus Multi Manager team continue to develop what is already a fast growing and highly regarded multi manager fund range.”
